China will leave Des Moines on March 1, 2019 and return to Iowa on March 10. It will explore the agriculture and cultural sites in areas around Beijing and in southeastern China.

The IFBF study tour will visit the US embassy in Beijing, Chinese industry officials, and a variety of Chinese crop and livestock production facilities.  Along the way, the study tour participants will meet with local farmers, agribusiness leaders, and others.
