Dairy UnitDairy Unit

Currently, the NDSU Animal and Ranges Sciences Dairy Research Unit is a 120-cow Grade A dairy and is located two miles north of the main campus along 19th Avenue North.

Herd Info

The dairy herd at NDSU was established in 1893. Registered and grade Holstein are the only breed found at the Research Unit with selective mating from popular sires. The herd is DHIA (Dairy Herd Improvement Association) tested and has recorded monthly production for over 30 years. Milk is marketed to Cass Clay Creamery, Fargo.

Information

Although it is a working dairy, the main goals of the facility are to conduct applied and basic research, to teach career minded students current dairy technologies and to demonstrate new concepts to the region's dairy producers.
