Description of Special Events

The Dairy Science Club mixes and sells our own homemade ice cream each week. We mix a wide variety of flavors in the ISU Meats Laboratory, and sell what we produce each Wednesday from 11 to 1 outside Lush Auditorium in Kildee Hall for just $2 per cup! This is one of the club's largest fundraisers.
Each year during the Iowa State Fair, the club hosts our annual "I Milked a Cow" Exhibit as our other main fundraiser. For $3, fair-goers can try their hand at milking one of our Jersey cows. Club members run the entire exhibit themselves, from educating the public to cow care.
