2017 Dairy Foods Extension Catalogue

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.

PEER REVIEW | Samantha VanWees: Bacteria, Light and Milk Processing

samanthavanwees_with_posterImagine winning an internationally renowned competition just six weeks after graduation — the excitement and the happiness. For 22-year-old Chicago native Samantha VanWees’16, this was what happened.

VanWees’s research, entitled, “Inactivation of Bacillus Licheniformis Vegetative Cells and Spores in Milk Using Pulsed Light Treatment,” considered how pulsed light — a technique used for food decontamination using short, intense pulses of a broad spectrum of light — is able to reduce bacteria during milk processing. Her achievement won her top honors for her poster and presentation at the Institute of Food Technologists’ undergraduate research competition in Chicago.

During her time as an undergraduate student at Cornell University, VanWees majored in food science, saying it was her love of cooking and her mother’s influence that sparked her interest in food not only nutritionally but also chemically. Read more

Amy Vasquez ’05, DVM ’09 receives Engaged Cornell graduate grant

Amy Vasquez ’05, DVM ’09, is researching mastitis (inflammation or infection of the mammary gland) in dairy cows for her doctorate in comparative biomedical sciences.   Her research seeks ways for dairy farmers to judiciously use antibiotics and alternative methods to treat mastitis and reduce economic losses from discarded milk, reduced production, treatment and other costs. Partnering with farmers in New York state and allied agribusinesses in a trial with 600 dairy cows, her study will develop, evaluate and implement an alternative antibiotic therapy for use on farms. Vasquez also will make recommendations based on the research findings and develop an outreach plan to communicate the results to the commercial dairy industry. Read full article.
