This program introduces students to animal production and environmental issues in Italy. Students will visit a variety of livestock farms as well as gain an appreciation for the production of agricultural products ranging from Parma ham to balsamic vinegar. Students will travel to Italy for 10 days in July and will be members of the Produzioni Animali learning community in the Fall semester.

Program will be offered in Summer 2019 (July 20 – July 30). Undergraduate participants will meet weekly throughout the Fall semester to continue discussions on the production practices experienced while traveling abroad.
