Department of Dairy and Food Science

Feed the world – with science.

Dairy is a huge industry that helps feed the world. And the science behind it helps employ a lot of SDSU grads. All of the decisions that go into the products consumers pick up from their grocery aisle were meticulously made by professionals in the dairy and food science field. SDSU's Dairy and Food Science Department has been an industry-leading program in the United States for more than a century . Starting with the founding of the Dakota Agricultural College in the 1880s, officially forming as a department in 1907 and more than doubling in enrollment since 1967, dairy science is a hallmark of SDSU's culture–and a high-demand, high-earnings field, to boot.

Let's dive into what makes SDSU's Dairy and Food Science Department a magnificent major choice for those in search of a lucrative career.

SDSU Extension offers agriculture diversity training at West River Field School

sdsu tour dates

SDSU Extension is offering a free hands-on agricultural learning opportunity at one of its research farms.

The West River Field School happens June 18 at the SDSU West River Research Farm near Sturgis.

Patrick Wagner is an SDSU Extension Entomology Field Specialist. He said this year’s presentations focus on the agricultural diversity in South Dakota.

The presentations include grazing cover crops/soil health, entomology, a climate update, a drone demonstration, and an optional farm tour.

SDSU holds most of the presentations outside to facilitate hands-on learning. “They’re not going to be sitting in a classroom,” Wagner said. “It’s a nice opportunity for people to get some real experience with what we do at the farm and to learn things they can take back to their own operation.”

Students can also receive certified crop advisor educational credits.

The Field School is free and lunch is provided. To register, visit the extension's website and search “school”.
