UWRF Wuethrich Family/Grassland Dairy Center Opening

The grand opening for the much anticipated Wuethrich Family/Grassland Dairy Center of Excellence at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls, a project that has been a decade in the making, will happen on Friday, Oct. 20.

Wisconsin agricultural leaders and University of Wisconsin System officials see the newly remodeled 6,000 square-foot dairy pilot plant – renamed for the Wuethrich Family Foundation and Grassland Dairy Products, Inc. after a $1 million donation to the plant – as a site where students and others will receive high-level, hands-on training to work in the dairy industry.

Officials with UW-River Falls, UW System, the agriculture industry and others will celebrate the remodeled dairy pilot plant beginning Friday at 11 a.m. at the dairy plant in the Agricultural Science building on campus.

A ribbon cutting is scheduled for 11:30 a.m., followed by tours of the facility and a reception beginning at noon.

The public is invited to the event. To register, visit
