Program Description

Discover livestock and poultry production in Italy while traveling with other students in your Learning Community. Freshman and sophomore students are invited to explore animal sciences in Italy for 12 days in July, then participate in a required course for your Learning Community during the fall semester on Purdue’s campus. Program participants in this 3-total credit hour experience will visit dairy farms in the Alps, learn about swine production in Parma, and discover how water buffalo are used to produce mozzarella cheese in Lombardy. Students will enjoy sampling parmigiana reggiano cheese, learning how balsamic vinegar is produced, and savoring prosciutto di Parma! During the trip, we will visit with students at agricultural universities, interact with local producers, and engage in conversation with animal industry representatives. Along the way we will compare and contrast animal production practices in Italy and the United States. Time will also be spent exploring cultural sites in Milan, Verona, Florence, and Venice.
