The “Scoops of Science: Public and Land-grant University Creamery Reception” on Capitol Hill highlighted ice cream and dairy products from a dozen public and land-grant university colleges of agriculture and offered an opportunity to showcase WSU’s dairy research and education.  

Washington State University is one of America’s leading dairy research universities and home to the legendary Cougar Gold Cheese. WSU’s Knott Dairy Center has been in operation for more than six decades and continues to lead the way in dairy teaching, research, and outreach to support the industry. Now undergoing a $10M renovation, the Dairy creates collaborative opportunities to discover best practices in dairy products and foods, with support from industry and government.
