The Dairy Innovation Hub has released its fourth annual report reflecting progress and activities at UW–Madison, UW–Platteville, and UW–River Falls from July 2022 through June 2023.
The report outlines the major accomplishments of the Hub, both since its inception and during the preceding fiscal year.
Read and download the report from the Hub website.
“The mission of the Dairy Innovation Hub is to provide research-based solutions, but that doesn’t always look the same. Some research yields solutions that can be applied right away. Other solutions are riskier and take longer, but hold potential for bigger impact,” says Dr. Heather White, faculty director for the Hub and professor of animal and dairy sciences at UW–Madison. “As you read our annual report, we hope that the breadth of research and the potential impact of the projects is apparent.”
Highlights of the report include:
- More than 200 projects funded across three campuses and four priority areas
- 17 total faculty searches across three campuses, with more planned for the future
- $3.1 million for dairy talent through recently hired faculty, trainees, and staff
- $7.8 million allocated for new dairy initiatives during the 2023 fiscal year
- Academic research achievements including engaged students, scholarly publications, presentations, leveraged funding and more
- Collaborative and synergistic initiatives across three campuses
- Engaged advisory council and three active steering committees
In addition to releasing the annual report, the Hub will host its fourth annual Dairy Summit conference on November 15 at UW–Platteville. The Summit features the Hub’s newest projects, formatted for a general audience. There is a live virtual option and sessions will be recorded and posted to YouTube.
Farmers, processors, dairy professionals, legislators, and community members are invited to attend this free educational event.

The Dairy Innovation Hub, is supported by a $7.8M annual state investment to drive research and development across the UW–Madison, UW–Platteville, and UW–River Falls campuses, ensuring that Wisconsin’s $45.6 billion dairy community remains a global pacesetter in producing nutritious dairy products. This is all accomplished with a keen focus on economic, environ-mental, and social sustainability.
