The new $5.1 million 500-cow dairy facility is a key component of
our overall integrated dairy modernization project. It will replace the
Arlington station’s Emmons Blaine Dairy, which houses approximately
240 cows. The new facility will play an integral role in the college’s dairy research mission by focusing on the lactating cow. The university’s
young stock are reared separately at recently updated facilities at the
Marshfield Agricultural Research Station. Together, these new facilities
will position the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences to meet the
future needs of Wisconsin’s dairy industry by providing researchers with
the resources needed to study dairy animals birth through lactation.
The Emmons Blaine Dairy is located 20 miles north of Madison, 1/4
mile west of State Hwy. 51 off of Badger Lane. Tel: (608) 846-3761.
