Join us for an exciting Innovation in Action tour of the UC Davis animal agriculture facilities, showcasing cutting-edge research in methane reduction and the excellence of their Animal Science program. During the tour, you will have the chance to explore the UC Davis Beef Barn and visit the Robert Mondavi Institute.

Guided by UC Davis faculty experts, this tour is a fantastic opportunity to get up close with the latest innovations in agriculture, connect with industry peers, and gather insights to further your own professional objectives.

Book your event and tour ticket. Transport and a boxed lunch are included in the tour price of USD $295. 

It’s important to note that biosecurity measures are in place for the safety of the UC Davis facilities. International visitors from outside the continental United States will be subject to a 7-day residency requirement in the U.S. before they can access the animal facilities. For those who have recently travelled from overseas and do not meet this eligibility criterion, alternative arrangements will be made within the site visit to ensure they still have a valuable experience.
