During this two-week program, you will travel with a UW faculty leader and a group of UW students through Mexico to visit a wide range of agricultural producers and processors, see their products, analyze the economic, environmental and social dimensions of the production system, and understand their respective roles in contributing to food security in a country where extreme wealth and poverty coexist.
An important note about this program is that students must be enrolled in Dairy Sci/Inter-Ag 471 or Dairy Sci/Animal Sci/Food Sci/Social Sci 472 during spring semester in order to be eligible to participate in the study abroad component of the program.
