Travel with Farm Futures to the Southern Hemisphere

Combine business and pleasure on Farm Futures' international farm tours

Farm Futures is set to host three international farm tours early next year, each designed to give you and your spouse the experience of a lifetime.

Whether it's Brazil, Argentina or Australia, you'll broaden your perspective on global agriculture while enjoying some of the great sightseeing wonders of the world.

"I've often said that when you return from a trip of this nature, you never watch the news the same way again," says Max Armstrong, one of the tour hosts and Farm Progress director of broadcasting. "It truly gives you a new and different perspective of the world outside our borders — out there where 96% of the world's population resides."

American farmers visit the home farm of Brazilian Julio Bergamasco during a Farm Futures tour in February 2012.

A tour is an excellent opportunity to chat with other farmers and exchange ideas. You'll travel with like-minded farmers, as experienced guides and translators accompany each tour.

One of the great benefits of international travel is that you can see firsthand what's happening with crops or livestock.

"I have spent much of my career writing about agriculture, and trips like the Trump Tour to Brazil are important for journalists like me so that we can better understand farming practices around the world, as well as the challenges these farmers face," says Bob Burgdorfer, Farm Futures senior editor.

Walking the fields of Brazil or talking with farmers in Argentina, you'll get new ideas for your business. Find out why Australia is the world's leading producer of cattle as you visit with ranchers at feedlots and cattle stations.

Excursions are organized by Trump Tours, an award-winning ag tour business based out of Arkansas. Itineraries mix a blend of farm visits and agribusinesses with breathtaking scenic stopovers.

Once you've traveled overseas, your view of the world will be changed forever. Don't miss out on this excellent opportunity.
