Babcock, an agricultural chemist at the University of Wisconsin from 1887 to 1913, is best known for inventing an easy way to measure the butterfat content of milk, called the Babcock test, which is still used throughout the world.  Babcock later helped conduct feeding studies of dairy cows that demonstrated nutritional differences among grains.
