Abstract

In the early morning hours of a 1964 summer day, 23 young men boarded a bus in front of the agronomy building to begin a month-long trip to Europe. That international trip-dubbed "The Ag Travel Course" - was a model for the many study abroad travel courses offered through the college today. The trip was a partnership between the animal science and agronomy departments. Two professors led the group. Jim Kiser ('42 animal science) and Roger Mitchell ('54 agronomy, PhD '61) chose Europe for that year's annual travel course because, as Mitchell tells it, "We felt the European Economic Community was going to have a significant impact of U.S. agriculture."
