Agriculture and farming
In the global economy, professionals of agriculture and farming in general live, learn and share with their counterparts and suppliers valuable information and views on this industry. A study trip gives the opportunity to improve your knowledge, but also to provide information to your organization or your company in order to enhance its competitive position on the agricultural market.
Opening the doors to agriculture and farming in general
On your agricultural journey, the doors of a variety of agricultural businesses will be open for you, whether it is a “factory farm” with more than 1,000 dairy cows, a farm specializing in a particular breed, or a family farm.
These are amazing experiences, which open the eyes of participants to a lot of aspects of their own job. The professionals you will visit deal with many of the same problems you face or will face. They are in competition to grow on a portion of the national or international market; the visit is thus particularly interesting. You will learn from their experience and will be able to exchange ideas as well as ask your questions about agriculture and farming in general.
Finding solutions to common challenges
During an agriculture and farming discovery trip, participants have many opportunities to visit and talk with professional farmers, agricultural associations, decision-makers and other key players who work to keep the family farm alive, or to expand their organization internationally.
The objective is to exchange ideas as well as questions, and maybe to find solutions to the common challenges of agriculture and farming in general that you are or will be faced with. The programme also aims at creating durable links and promoting future exchanges between farmers or breeders.
Here is a list of some areas that may be included in your customized trip. It is not an exhaustive list. Regardless of your specialization or orientation, any kind of farm can be envisaged:
