Shires, Shorthorns, and Sheep: New Study Abroad Course Offered by ANSC Faculty

Drs. Marcia Hathaway and Krishona Martinson are leading a new study abroad course that focuses on livestock systems in England. This course will examine the similarities and differences between Minnesota and England animal agriculture, including beef, dairy, sheep, and horse systems. Students will explore the history and culture of England, including the Thames River, Shakespeare’s Globe Theater, Greenwhich Meridian, and activities in Cambridge and London. Students will visit production livestock farms, including dairy, beef, sheep, and horse, and enjoy two BBQs with locally raised meat. There will also be opportunities to visit historical markets, including Smithfiled, Porta Bella and Borough.

The course is an embedded Spring B term course (beginning the week after spring break) with two weeks abroad. It will be offered every other year in the even years.
