The Western Dairy Center (WDC) seeks to advance dairy food research, technology, and industry. This is accomplished through the collaboration of professors, researchers, and students from Western U.S. universities who participate in the WDC’s BUILD (Building University-Industry linkages through Learning and Discovery) Dairy program. Together they learn more about milk chemistry, food safety, cheesemaking, and the business of dairy production. Through the work and research completed at the Western Dairy Center, students can prepare to enter the dairy food industry and help to make advancements in this field.
