Nestle Selects UW-Madison to Develop Curriculum for Major Dairy Training Program in China

The University of Wisconsin-Madison has been selected to develop the curriculum for a new $400 million dairy training center being established by the Nestle corporation in China's northeast province of Heilongjiang. Nestle executives will be on campus on June 10 to sign a three-year, $1.7 million agreement under which UW-Madison personnel will design and help deliver a series of courses covering key aspects of dairy farm management, including milk quality, milking management, reproductive management, feeding and feed delivery, animal health, biosecurity and overall farm management skills. The UW-Madison team's primary role is to plan the format, content and delivery of the training. Most of the actual teaching will be done by trainers employed by the Dairy Farming Institute or by expert consultants supplied by dairy industry firms -including several from Wisconsin - that are collaborating on the project. The effort will involve many UW-Madison's dairy scientists as well as specialists with dairy-related expertise in the School of Veterinary Medicine and other disciplines such as biological systems engineering and agricultural economics, as well as experts in curriculum and instruction.
