Texas Dairy Tour


Minnesota Milk’s Dairy Tours are designed to give everyone a chance to get off the farm to see what others are doing in the industry. Traveling with other members of the dairy industry who have similar interests and experiences while also having a vacation off the farm is also important to our participants.

We depart for Dallas. On arrival at DFW airport, our coach and driver meet us and we transfer to the George W. Bush Presidential Center.

Day 3: Friday, February 17 – Fort Worth
This morning after a leisurely breakfast, the Old West comes to life as we head down to the stockyards. We begin with a bus tour of the area with a local guide. We then experience the Fort Worth Herd’s daily cattle drive, watching as the cowhands drive the Texas longhorns down Exchange Avenue in the Stockyards National Historic District. We view the cattle afterward in the holding pens behind the Livestock Exchange Building. We have a bit of free time to find lunch and explore the area’s shops and ambiance. This evening we enjoy a BBQ dinner and show at the Stockyards Championship Rodeo complete with barrel racing, cow roping and bull riding.
