About

This program focuses on animal agriculture, especially dairy farming, and how economic, environmental, and social policies have affected it. Students will be introduced to the culture and history of the Netherlands and its environmental resources and concerns.
Similarities between animal agriculture in the Netherlands and Michigan will be discussed. Dairy farming in the Netherlands is similar to dairy farming in the Great Lakes region of the United States. Like southern Michigan, the Netherlands has a temperate climate, borders large bodies of water, and has many people coexisting with intensive agriculture.  Thus, the challenges in dairy husbandry and environmental stewardship for Michigan and Dutch agriculture are similar.
