2014 Dairy Products Evaluation Team
Congratulations to our Dairy Products Evaluation team who took second place in the nation for the evaluation of ice cream. UI Senior Lindsay Milligan took the individual first place award in ice cream, and WSU Senior Katie Smoot won the Joe Larson Merit Award– the student who best exemplifies the ideals of the contest. Nice work, team! The 93rd annual Dairy Product Evaluation Contest was held in Hoffman Estates, IL at the Northern Illinois University Conference Center. The event this year is hosted by Tate and Lyle Ingredients. Five students, ranging in academic experience from juniors to grad students, competed on Saturday, November 8. They evaluated Cottage cheese, Cheddar cheese, vanilla ice cream, 2% milk, salted sweet cream butter and Swiss style strawberry yogurt for different sensory qualities alongside teams from other universities across the nation. Our SFS student participants were Allison Baker, Bryce Vanderyacht, Patricia Flores, Lindsay Milligan and Katie Smoot. The team is advised by Mike Costello and assistant advisor Helen Joyner.
