The Badger Dairy Club (BDC) is one of the largest student organizations at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. BDC participates in a number of different activities throughout the school year that allow members to network within the dairy industry, while emphasizing professionalism, developing future leaders and fostering club camaraderie.
Because World Dairy Expo takes place in our backyard, we have the unique opportunity to be intricately involved in the event. Our members work behind the scenes before, during, and after the show. World Dairy Expo is also the site of one of our largest fundraisers, the BDC Cheese Stand, which serves up thousands of grilled cheese sandwiches each year.
BDC also sponsors the always exciting Badger Invitational Sale. Our biannual sale, features cattle from some of Wisconsin and the Midwest’s prominent registered Holstein Breeders.
BDC also serves as a workforce for many service activities, including the FFA Dairy Judging Contest, 4-H Dairy Quiz Bowl, and the Midwest National Spring Show Youth Showmanship contests.
The Badger Dairy Club meets on the third Wednesday of every month in 212 Animal Sciences at 7 p.m. Our club dues are $20 for four year members and $10 for Short Course students. For more information about our club or how to join, please feel free to contact us. We look forward to hearing from you!
