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.
