National Milk Day
Babcock Hall Dairy Plant

January 11th is National Milk Day

We love January because the 11th marks National Milk Day, a favorite holiday of ours! We make five different kinds of milk in the Babcock Hall Dairy Plant, including whole, skim, chocolate, strawberry and 2%.

Students Take to the Plant

We had the pleasure of working in the plant with four UW-Madison Food Science students this fall! They helped create a Babcock Dairy ice cream flavor by developing a formula for the mix, working the assembly line in the plant, as well as conducting quality control and sensory analysis tests.

AMAZING RACEcream Coming Soon

Last season on The Amazing Race on CBS, two UW Food Science grad students took home first-place! Maya Warren and Amy DeJong work right here in Babcock Hall, so we'd like to congratulate them on their huge accomplishment with a new, celebratory ice cream flavor: AMAZING RACEcream! Thank you to everyone who submitted name ideas, especially Chris Thomas of the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation, whose suggestion was chosen. Stay tuned for when it'll hit the Babcock Dairy dipping cabinets, and give these #SweetScientists a pat on the back next time you see them!
