Transatlantic Agricultural Dialogue
The Transatlantic Agricultural Dialogue was an exchange program for German and American farmers. The program provided platforms for professional dialogue and allowed farmers to better understand international markets, exchange practical ideas, and form international contacts and friendships.
Despite living in different countries and farming under different conditions and regulatory frameworks, farmers in America and Germany face surprisingly similar challenges, including public acceptance, regulations, farm succession and changing commodity prices.
Exploring Transatlantic Agricultural Trade with Custom Trips to Germany
We offered turnkey trip packages to Germany for US agricultural organizations. We planned custom trips, connected companies with local farmers and associations, offered translation services, and more. Our study trips allowed organizations to understand international markets better, exchange best practices with farmers in Germany, and build lasting contacts and friendships in both countries. These trips were designed for current and future agricultural decision-makers. This included members and board members from ag commodity groups and other farming associations, as well as agricultural leadership students whose curriculum included a study trip abroad.
