YouTube summary: "Liquid sweet whey, a byproduct following the manufacture of cheese, is traditionally sent to the landfill, serving no functional purpose for farmers and resulting in a disposal cost. At MSU, students in Agribusiness Management have uncovered a unique dual purpose for the whey that both reduces cost and diverts waste."
