Six Dairy Research Projects Get Funding

UW-Platteville has awarded six faculty research fellowships to increase dairy-related research capacity through the Dairy Innovation Hub.

The selected faculty members will tackle research projects in the hub’s four priority areas: stewarding land and water resources, enriching human health and nutrition, ensuring animal health and welfare, and growing farm business and communities. 

A faculty research fellowship is a temporary position for permanent faculty members. The goal is to provide support for a specific research project and any ancillary costs — including ensuring that the faculty member will have enough time to conduct the research and support for existing teaching responsibilities. 

“Each fellowship that we fund will have an impact on the dairy community as well as the faculty, staff and students engaged in the research projects,” says Tera Montgomery, professor of animal and dairy science, who leads the hub’s UW-Platteville campus steering committee.
