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.

October 12, 2023, 12:00-1:45 PM EST: Join us for an hour workshop learning how to build your leadership voice in a way that creates trust and support for the future of nutrition. Following the communication workshop we will be heading to the Rowlett’s dairy farm and creamery to get an inside look at what happens on a dairy farm and how delicious foods like cheese and ice cream are made.
This tour is designed for dietetic interns and university nutrition students.
