The summer 2021 issue of Grow magazine is starting to appear in mailboxes, but you can read it online first! Feature stories include:

  • The Future Holds No Limits for Meat Science at CALS
    With a new state-of-the-art facility, the Meat Science and Animal Biologics Discovery program looks to fulfill its untapped potential.
  • A Wisconsin Idea Win-Win
    Through the UniverCity Year program, CALS works with local communities to address troublesome issues while pursuing valuable teaching and research opportunities.
  • The Race to the Animal Vault
    As fauna fade from existence across the globe, CALS researchers look for ways to store tens of thousands of genetic samples and use cloning to preserve and revitalize endangered — and possibly extinct — species.

Other topics: microwave cooking myths, bioacoustics and black ash, commencement speaker advocates for farmers in his native Malawi, students take on dairy dilemmas, monitoring deforestation from space, understanding evolution through statistics, and more.

And don’t forget the Final Exam. Can you ace the test for a chance to win a box of cheese from Babcock Hall? Good luck!
