Wisconsin Ag Connection - 08/22/2019

The Wisconsin Cheese Makers Association is applauding the progress made on the University of Wisconsin River Falls Dairy Pilot Plant renovation project, including the completion of a new, high-tech training room, used for the first time on Thursday. WCMA has contributed $200,000 to the $4 million project, which is set for completion in late Spring 2020.

"The dairy processing industry relies on a skilled workforce, and we're excited to bring enhanced learning opportunities to our members and their employees at UW-River Falls," said WCMA Director John Umhoefer.

UWRF offers a complete Food Science and Technology major, as well as continuing education courses focused on pasteurization, cheesemaking, and food safety.

Umhoefer says he applauds the leadership team at UW-River Falls for its commitment to the dairy pilot plant renovation project.
