2. Middle Tennessee State University
Dairy cows went back to school in the summer of 2017 at the MTSU Creamery. The university began offering high-quality whole-white and chocolate milk to the area and campus for the first time in over half a century. As part of the School of Agribusiness and Agriscience, Experiential Learning and Research Center, students work in the Lascassas, Tennessee, dairy center and ensure quality products reach the milk-processing plant inside the campus at Stark Agribusiness Center. With a production rate of 10 gallons of milk per minute, products are sent to the campus bookstore and nearby mini mart and grocery stores. With dairy production back on campus, MTSU looks to expand distribution to other local Tennessee stores.
