Have you ever wondered how milk is produced, how farmers care for their cows, or how long it takes for milk to get from farm to table?
The Dairy Alliance invites you to a LIVE Virtual Dairy Farm Tour!
What is a Virtual Farm Tour?
Our LIVE Virtual Farm Tours connect you directly with a working dairy farm for a real-time video tour and chat with a farmer, all from the convenience of your own classroom, living room or wherever your students happen to be learning! Using video chat technology, you’ll get a peek at barns, cows, milking parlors and more to learn firsthand how dairy farmers care for their cows and the land and produce delicious milk and dairy products for you to enjoy. You’ll also have the opportunity to submit questions to be answered live by the farmer and dairy experts during your tour.

April 27, 2022, 1:00-1:45 PM EST: Join the team at Middle Tennessee University Dairy farm for a virtual tour of their farm where they milk cows and teach students modern dairy production techniques. Matthew Wade, director of farmer laboratories, will walk special guest and registered dietitian Mia Syn through the university dairy farm showing how their cows are cared for, fed, and milked.
