CALS Faces

John Jaeggi

John Jaeggi, coordinator of the Cheese Industry and Applications Group at the Center for Dairy Research (CDR), has been discussing dairy industry challenges in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. He looks at how the pandemic is impacting all segments of the cheese industry—the farm, manufacturing, supply chain, and consumer—and what the CDR is doing to help. He says that recent years have been difficult. Issues with dairy exports, other market conditions, and now the COVID-19 pandemic have hurt the industry, but he sees a way forward if researchers and farmers work together. Jaeggi is a third generation licensed Wisconsin Cheesemaker and is actively involved with the CDR’s Cheese Research Group. As part of CDR’s “Technology Triangle,” he works to transfer research findings to the U.S. dairy industry, including new ideas for product development and innovative solutions to problems.
