Three scholars and policymakers from a leading Chinese university visited the Colorado State University campus, Extension locations in the Denver metropolitan area and in the Western slope, and Morgan County's Quail Ridge Dairy. They are learning about CSU Extension programs--their visit to the dairy was to learn how Extension works with the dairy industry to support and advance production there. “CSU is honored to be a partner in this initiative to advance a pragmatic and nationally scalable model for university-based Extension in China, which includes more effective and efficient transfer of agriculture and food system technologies,” said Lou Swanson, CSU Vice President for Engagement and CSU Extension director.

The representatives came to Colorado through a partnership between Chinese and American universities that includes CSU and is intended to promote such educational visits and other collaborations.
