The Cornell University Dairy Foods Extension team, with the Department of Food Science in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, is a diverse group of faculty and staff with extensive knowledge that spans nearly all aspects of dairy science and technology. While our mission is to provide information and training programs to the dairy production and processing sectors, consumer questions and concerns are addressed as well. The Dairy Foods Extension team is available to assist Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE) in their training and outreach needs at the county level. We also provide classroom-style on-campus trainings as well as customizable in-plant trainings.
