The Cornell Dairy Center of Excellence connects over 100 faculty and staff at Cornell with expertise in the dairy industry. These faculty and staff engage in research, extension outreach, and teaching, and come from departments across the university. The goals of the DCOE include facilitating research collaboration, enhancing the visibility of dairy expertise at Cornell, and improving teaching and the dairy education experience for both students and stakeholders within and beyond our land-grant colleges.
