UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls
The University of Wisconsin-River Falls College of Agriculture, Food and Environmental Sciences (CAFES) has earned an outstanding reputation for excellence in education and service to the region, nation and the world since 1912 and is consistently ranked as one of the top undergraduate agricultural programs in the nation.
UW-River Falls (UWRF) features the only agricultural engineering technology program in the state, one of the largest dairy science programs in the nation, as well as an agricultural studies program that gives you the flexibility to design an individualized program.
Our facilities include computer labs, food processing plants, a greenhouse complex and two laboratory farms with animal and crop production enterprises. These facilities as well as the college's internship program and student organizations contribute to our commitment to hands-on and engaging learning experiences inside and outside the classroom.
The Dairy Pilot Plant Renovation began with a $100,000 gift from the Wisconsin Cheese Makers Association in June 2013. Its fundraising efforts continue and the project is anticipated to be complete January 2019.
