What do we do?

The Babcock Hall Dairy Plant, built in 1950, is a 20,000 square foot building that produces ice cream, natural cheeses, and milk products everyday while also educating students in its classrooms and on the plant floor. The involvement of student workers is a huge part of the Dairy Plant’s culture.

The Babcock Hall Dairy Plant’s products are distributed to many food sites on campus including but not limited to dormitory cafeterias, the Athletic Department including the Kohl Center and Camp Randall Stadium, Memorial Union, Union South, the Babcock Hall Dairy Store itself, and UW Hospital.

The Babcock Hall Dairy Plant produces products and services that have been and always will be an important part of the University of Wisconsin experience and legacy.
