Back in the USA!


We have all arrived back in the US! What an incredible twelve days we had in Asia. The I-CAL program was fortunate to have twelve amazing college students apart of the program this year. The students truly had a thrust for learning and experiencing international agriculture. Now that they are back in the US, they have been given the challenge of helping others understand international agriculture, marketing and trade. While we enjoyed our time visiting the many cultural sites China and Vietnam have to offer (the Great Wall, Forbidden City, Olympics Bird’s Nest and Water Cube, and dragon boat races), it was the tours of dairy farms, feed mills, and aquaculture operations that truly made the program memorable and educational.

We would like to thank everybody who read the blog while we were overseas. We are lucky to have been able to work with the US Grains Foundation again this year to provide such an amazing opportunity for our collegiate students.

Until next year!
