Inscription. The dairy barn and silo were constructed in 1926-27 and served as a teaching facility for 40 years. The barn was designed by Forth Worth architect W.C. Hedrick with the help of Ag Dean A.H. Leidigh and Prof. W.L. Stangel. Students brought their own cows to campus until 1935. Milk products were first marketed through the Student Dairy Association. After 1927 the Dairy Manufactures Department, established by K.M. Renner, furnished milk and ice cream to the Lubbock community and college cafeterias. The barn was abandoned in 1964 when dairy operations were moved to another location.

In 1990-92, a successful student fundraising effort insured the preservation of the dairy barn as a symbol of Texas Tech's agricultural heritage.
