Cooperative for Real Education in Agricultural Management (CREAM)

CREAM Faculty Advisor

Dr. Norm Purdie

Originally from Australia, Dr. Purdie worked on dairy farms in his native Queensland for nine years before he attended the University of Queensland and received his Bachelor of Agricultural Science degree with first class honors and a Ph.D. in nitrogen metabolism in the dairy cow. He has worked in dairy systems in Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the United States. His aim with the UVM CREAM program is to make it the preeminent experiential learning experience in North America, teaching students valuable dairy and life skills by getting their hands and boots dirty. Dr. Purdie is seen above searching for Hector's Dolphins, the smallest dolphins in the world.
