Faculty and staff with an interest in the Dairy Innovation Hub are encouraged to attend the second of two brainstorming sessions on Monday, December 2 from 1-4 p.m. in the Steenbock Library Biocommons (550 Babcock Drive). These sessions are an opportunity to discuss plans and priorities 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
