Wisconsin Ag Connection - 04/04/2019

The University of Wisconsin-Madison Department of Dairy Science invites prospective students and their parents to visit campus this Friday to explore what the program has to offer. The event takes place April 5 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Attendees will get a firsthand look at one of the world's leading dairy science departments as they tour the UW-Madison campus and Dairy Cattle Center. Student will also meet faculty, participate in hands-on workshops and learn about the wide variety of opportunities available to dairy science majors. Current students and alumni will be on hand to answer questions and share their experiences.

The UW-Madison undergraduate dairy science program emphasizes a combination of cutting-edge, science-based knowledge and hands-on experiences. Award-winning research and extension faculty teach more than 20 undergraduate courses covering nutrition, reproduction, mammary physiology, genetics and other aspects of dairy management. On-campus, state-of-the art dairy facilities enhance the learning experience.

"For high school students, the spring of their junior year is really when I would recommend they start taking campus visits," says Kent Weigel, professor and chair of the dairy science department. "Making a college visit and touring the campus can be pivotal in a student's decision to attend college and what schools they end up applying to."

For UW-Madison admission eligibility, it is recommended that seniors rank in the top 25 percent of their high school class. Transfer students must have completed at least 24 semester hours of college-level work.
