Discover NC Dairy is a virtual dairy farm tour package that is available in two forms. The first is a self-service kiosk with a TV controlled by a tablet on which viewers may select as many of the 11 videos to watch as they choose. Each video is approximately 2 – 2.5 minutes in length, and topics range from the calf nursery to the milking parlor to waste storage and management. The second form is called Discover NC Dairy 360°, a virtual reality experience in 3-D with headsets that provide an immersive experience for individual viewers. Focused on a scientific, objective and practical portrayal of the dairy sector of North Carolina’s agricultural economy, Discover NC Dairy is a tool that can be utilized by virtually anyone.

For more information, including all the videos, visit Discover NC Dairy.

Support for this project was made possible by a Gore Innovation Grant from NC State Extension, the Dairy Alliance, and N.C. Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services.
