Biographical / Historical

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln's Dairy Store opened in 1917 as Varsity Dairy and provided dairy products for the UNL dormitories. Today, the Dairy Store serves handmade ice creams, cheeses and meats to the Lincoln community and beyond. The dairy plants and facilities also provide an educational experience for UNL's food science students. In the facilities, students have the opportunity to invent and create products, learn in laboratories, research dairy products and become future food industry problem solvers.
