Program Description:
Argentina: Comparative Agriculture with an Emerging Global Competitor

Program Overview:

Estimated Program Dates: March 8 – March 17, 2018

Argentina’s increasing production in corn, soybean, wheat and beef has positioned the country as one of the main agricultural competitors to the United States on the global market. This study abroad program provides a wide-range course on the various Argentine practices of crop and beef production, logistics, processing, policy, and commodity trading in comparison to those of the U.S., as well as an overview of Argentina’s unique history, rich culture, and vast landscapes. Students will be exposed to these agricultural and cultural concepts through pre-trip classroom discussions and firsthand, in-country site visits.

Students will visit cattle and dairy ranches, specialty crop farms, and crushing plants. Additionally, they will tour the Rosario Board of Trade, the University of Agriculture, and Argentina’s Annual Ag Expo. Cultural activities include tango dinner show, cooking class, winery visit, and city tours.

Dr. Amber Remble (amber.remble@uwrf.edu) is the program leader.
