WSU Creamery nabs third consecutive national 'Big Scoop' win with Huckleberry Ripple ice cream

For the third year in a row, the Department of Animal Sciences at Washington State University has claimed the national ice cream trophy, the 'Big Scoop.' The department's dairy students and faculty, partnering with the WSU Creamery, competed at the American Society of Animal Sciences Ice Cream Competition, held July 9 in Baltimore, MD. Judges at the event voted with their spoons, declaring WSU's Huckleberry Ripple the winner.

WSU competed against North Carolina State University and the University of Connecticut. The Animal Sciences department received $1,000 in prize money in its third year of collegiate competition for the Big Scoop to be spent on student activities, and will also host a traveling trophy through 2018.

The national award showcases not only WSU ice cream, but also the undergraduate programs and opportunities in animal sciences. The department prioritizes on-the-job learning for its students, many of whom learn about the dairy industry from cow to cone.

Contributing to the win is the creamery's unique relationship with Knott Dairy Farm, a 150-cow farm located just outside of Pullman that gives students working dairy experience. WSU Creamery uses 1,700 gallons of milk per day from the Knott Dairy, which includes a small herd owned and managed by the Cooperative University Dairy Students (CUDS). Animal Science students follow best management practices that maintain animal health and wellbeing to produce wholesome food, including fantastic ice cream and Cougar Gold cheese.
