Northeast Agribusiness and Feed Alliance honors Dr. Dale Bauman for service
Dr. Bauman is a native of Michigan and attended Michigan State University. From a dairy farm upbringing Bauman received a 4-H scholarship to MSU and became one of the world’s most cited agricultural scientists. His abiding interest has been in dairy cattle and he has made several major contributions to the fundamental understanding of the lactation process.
Dr. Bauman obtained his PhD in Dairy Science from the University of Illinois in 1969. He remained there for a decade, then moved to Cornell University. Dr. Bauman capped his career with research directed toward “functional foods”- using milk to deliver beneficial milk components into the human diet.
