About the Tour

The Plant Agriculture Field Trip course, which is better known around campus as the Midwest Tour, is a field study course designed to increase the student's breadth of knowledge of agricultural production and agri-business in North America. Students in the course tour a selected area of the midwest United States prior to the fall semester, visiting cash crop and livestock farms, supporting industries (e.g. processing, manufacturing) and markets (e.g. elevators, stockyards)
