The Dairy Innovation Hub will host an informational research poster session at the State Capitol to highlight select projects funded by the initiative at UW–Madison, UW–Platteville, and UW–River Falls.

Attendees are invited to browse a dozen research posters and engage with students and faculty affiliated with Hub-funded projects. Legislators, staff, and the public are encouraged to participate.

The event will take place on the first-floor rotunda from 12 p.m. – 3 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 31. On the same day, farmers and ag industry professionals will be in the building for legislative discussions and visits as part of Ag Day at the Capitol, coordinated by Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation.

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, environmental, and social sustainability.
