Conception to Consumption:

England

While in England, the students visited the National Farmers's Union for a meeting with NFU's chief lobbyist, Terry Jones. Mr. Jones delivered a presentation on British agriculture including information on markets, subsidies, and history.

The students also visited the University of Reading School of Agriculture where they toured the school's experimental farm and museum.

"Being able to observe foreign agricultural practices first hand was an experience of a lifetime.  The opportunity brought classroom learning and real applications together.  It was through this experience that I am now able to better understand world beef production, and the implications for US expansion into EU markets." ~Joe Vanek
