Dairy Center Expands Research And Teaching Opportunities

April 30, 2008


Last December, two new hoop-style buildings were built at the SIUC Dairy Center on McLafferty Road. The structures were built to replace two old-style stall housing facilities and a small research barn/feeder shelter.  The new state-of-the-art facility is made of translucent, heat-blocking fabric stretched over steel frames. It is anticipated the new structures will cut costs, provide better lighting and protection against the elements for the animals, and increase milk production and quality.  To learn more about the exciting changes at the Dairy Center, see the article below.
