Biographical or historical data
The first short course in dairying at Michigan Agricultural College (now Michigan State University) was held in the winter of 1893-1894. The Old Dairy Barn was built in 1900. The Dairy Department was created in 1910. Graduate courses were added and assistantships were created in the 1920s. A new Dairy Barn was constructed in 1929. Dairying was first taught in the basement rooms of the old Agricultural Laboratory (eventually becoming the Entomology Building). By 1900 dairy work had outgrown the basement space and a new dairy building was erected. The Dairy Department used the basement and the first floor and Forestry used the second floor (now known as Chittenden Hall). In 1913 another dairy building was constructed which was devoted entirely to dairy manufacturing. This building consequently became the Soil Sciences building and was demolished in 1987. In 1955 Anthony Hall was constructed. Today Anthony Hall houses the main MSU Dairy Store and includes the facility where cheese and ice cream are made. The Dairy Science Department was merged into the Animal Sciences Department in 1981.
