The purpose of the Dairy Science Club is to promote and stimulate interest in the dairy industry.  The club provides educational activities for students interested in agriculture and promotes scholarship and leadership skills among club members. It also allows students to meet other students and faculty that share mutual interest and enthusiasm about the dairy industry.

The club has many events that they participate in annually. At the NC State Fair, the club has a T-shirt booth, helps with the Got To Be NC cheese booth, ringmasters for the junior dairy show, and helps out in the milk parlor. The Club also attends and competes at Southern Regional ADSA, National ADSA, Regional Dairy Challenge, and National Dairy Challenge. Though the club enjoys the many dairy related trips, it also makes time to give back to the community through services such as dairy unit clean-ups and handing out Howling Cow Ice-Cream at Special Olympics.
