360 Video: Nebraska Dairy Store

Sales at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln Dairy Store began in 1917 with all-you-can-drink milk for a nickel — but only for customers who brought their own glass.

Now, more than 100 years later, the Dairy Store is a Nebraska tradition, serving a lineup of sweet ice cream treats, handmade cheeses and meats cut by students in the university's Loeffel Meat Laboratory. Click the 360-degree video above to learn more about how the dairy store churns out cold treats that offer brief respites from Nebraska's summer heat.
