Discover NC Dairy is a virtual dairy farm tour that will soon be available for dairy producers, extension agents and agricultural educators from NC State Extension. The video kiosk version had its maiden voyage at the 90th annual NC FFA Convention in Raleigh on June 19-20, 2018. Students and ag teachers alike were able to watch 11 videos from real dairy farms in North Carolina and the Southeast that covered aspects of production from the nursery to the milking parlor, as well as general information about dairy breeds and an overview of North Carolina’s dairy industry. Later this summer, Discover NC Dairy – 360°, an immersive, virtual reality experience for participants, complete with 3-D headsets will be debuted at the Mountain State Fair in Fletcher & the State Fair in Raleigh! This project was made possible by a Gore Innovation Grant through NC State Extension and was supported by Agricultural & Resource Economics & Animal Science Departments, the Dairy Alliance, and NCDA&CS.
