Dairy Testers

Clip: Season 2 Episode 9 | 4m 11s

States like California may cultivate wine taste-testers; but here in Wisconsin, we develop dairy taste-testers. For 36 years, UW-Madison Emeritus Professor of Food Science, Bob Bradley, has been teaching a course in “sensory evaluation,” training students to be taste testers of dairy products. Students who have what he regards as “good buds” get to join in the team that competes nationally.
