Dairy MAX representatives visit food science courses

Recently, representatives from Dairy MAX, a nonprofit dairy council representing dairy farm families across Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico and Southwest Kansas, spoke to students enrolled in principles of food science courses in SFA’s School of Human Sciences.

Sarah Ryan, Dairy MAX program coordinator, registered dietitian, SFA alumna and former SFA student regent, discussed how the company works with dairy farmers and the nutritional value of milk and other dairy products.

Dairy MAX representatives also shook things up — literally — by having students shake heavy cream in jars to create butter. Students viewed and discussed different yogurts and why cow’s milk is ideal for making creamy yogurt.

Axe ’em, Jacks! — One of our favorite sayings! When writing this, make sure there is a comma between "Axe ’em" and "Jacks" and that the apostrophe before “em” opens to the left.

Also, because there are no commas in hashtags, omit "Jacks." Simply use #AxeEm. Otherwise, it's saying, "Axe the Jacks." I think we can all agree we don't want that.
