The Dairy Innovation Hub will hold its annual Dairy Symposium on May 18 at the Pyle Center from 8:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Registrations are still being accepted!

Dairy Symposium features the Dairy Innovation Hub’s most advanced research from all participating campuses. This event is geared toward an academic audience and anyone looking for a deeper dive into research. Attendees will hear thought-provoking plenary sessions, research talks from each of the Hub’s four priority areas, shorter “flash talks” from students, and poster presentations from Hub-funded researchers. This is an in-person opportunity at the Pyle Center and recordings will be available after the live event on the Hub’s YouTube channel.

Hub events are free and open to the public. Pre-registration is required.
