Ag/Dairy Field Trip Suggestions

  • Old World Wisconsin

    Eagle, WI

    "The immigrants and pioneers who settled Wisconsin came from vastly different cultures. Yet they all shared a common purpose — the determined pursuit of the American Dream. Old World Wisconsin tells their stories by re-creating a world in which farmers, tradesmen and shopkeepers lead their lives the same way these settlers did. Bring the whole family to see, hear and smell the same things that filled the senses of those hardy souls who chose to build new lives in a faraway place called Wisconsin."

  • National Dairy Shrine Visitors' Center

    Ft. Atkinson, WI

    "Discover the rich heritage of the dairy industry at the National Dairy Shrine Visitors' Center. Where else can you learn the history of ice cream, see a dog-powered butter churn and check out photos of champion cows dating back nine decades? You'll leave with a better understanding of why, for nearly 8,000 years, people have depended on the dairy cow for life-sustaining milk and a better quality of life."

  • National Historic Cheesemaking Center

    Monroe, WI

    Learn how cheese was made over a century ago without today's modern conveniences. The museum also includes a video showing the cheesemaking process in today's modern cheese factories.

  • World Dairy Expo

    Madison, WI

    Usually held in early October, the World Dairy Expo is the international meeting place for the dairy industry offering the most elite combination of dairy cattle and exhibits in the world.
