Dairy cows at the University of Wisconsin-Madison are preparing for the royal treatment once the Dairy Cattle Center completes renovations totaling $3 million.
The upgraded center on campus includes gel mattresses, more spacious stalls and better ventilation according to the Associated Press. Cows from the dairy produce ice cream and cheese at the Babcock Hall Dairy Store.
The center, built in 1956, houses 88 Holsteins and Jerseys and is one of only a few universities to keep cows on campus.
Herd manager Mike Peters said the modern cows are genetically bred to be bigger and need more space than the center currently allows.
