Gopher Dairy Club

The Gopher Dairy Club is one of the most active student organizations on the University of Minnesota’s Twin Cities campus. We hold monthly meetings during the academic year as well as participate in a variety of activities including: Regional and National American Dairy Science Association (ADSA), Minnesota Royal, an annual awards banquet, a senior trip to California, and an alumni reunion at World Dairy Expo.

The Gopher Dairy Bar at the Minnesota State Fair provides profit from sales of milk and milkshakes and results in the Gopher Dairy Club having the largest budget among student organizations on the Twin Cities campus. This permits members to travel free of charge to numerous dairy events around the country.

Check out our video to see what the University of Minnesota Gopher Dairy Club does throughout the year. From participating in Regional ADSA to working at the Gopher Dairy Bar during the Minnesota State Fair to fund raise for club activities—the opportunities are endless. Learn about Gopher Dairy Camp, the Dairy Judging Team, Dairy Challenge, Networking Evening, and much more! See: Club Video
