The Michigan State University Dairy Cattle Teaching and Research Center is essential to the university’s teaching, research and Extension missions and its efforts to support the Michigan dairy industry. Michigan’s dairy industry generates nearly $16 billion annually. MSU’s dairy farm has been in operation for more than six decades and needs upgrades to modernize its technology and infrastructure to continue to lead the way in dairy teaching, research and outreach to support the dynamic dairy industry.
