Cooperative for Real Education in Agricultural Management (CREAM)



CREAM, Cooperative for Real Education in Agricultural Management, is a student-run dairy herd. UVM students manage farm operation and perform all of the barn chores. There are currently 34 milking Holstein and Jersey cows plus replacement animals in the herd. It is one of the highest producing and genetically superior herds in Vermont. This spring and fall semester program offers 8 credits (4 per semester) to 13-16 students each year. Successful applicants are selected from all majors across the University and are not required to have a dairy or livestock background. The key requirements are a commitment to working hard and the thirst for knowledge. A CREAM student will leave this program with the skills necessary to excel in his/her chosen field whether that be business management, community development and applied economics, animal science, or biology.
