Program Overview

G'day! Travel "Down Under" to learn about how the systems used in management of animals for food and fiber are uniquely adapted to this landscape and environment while comparing similar challenges that exist in California. You will be undertaking a road trip from the coastal city of Brisbane, south through the New England tablelands, the famous Hunter Valley, and ending up in Sydney.

Along the way you’ll explore how animals are raised in different settings, how farmers adapt to a changing environment, and how scientists are developing new tools and approaches to improve animal welfare and performance. You’ll also meet some of the wonderful Australian fauna and flora, from the coastlines to the inland landscapes. Full Program Details
