Mark your calendars for a college-wide discussion on plans related to the Dairy Innovation Hub: Tuesday, November 12, 2019 from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. This is an opportunity for faculty and staff to discuss plans for how the $4M in funding coming to CALS will be invested in the coming years.
Broadly, the funding approved by the Joint Finance Committee will support research personnel (faculty, postdocs and graduate students), equipment, farms and labs in four areas related to dairy that each span many academic disciplines:
- Stewarding land and water resources
- Enriching human health and nutrition
- Ensuring animal health and welfare
- Growing farm businesses and communities
More details and an additional date will be shared in a future eCALS post.
