As part of Iowa State University, the ISU Farms are intended to be an educational resource for students and the community. In order to ensure the safety of visitors, farm staff, and animals,
Tours of the farms are available through prior appointment only. Please allow at least a week for arrangements to be made.
Please contact Mary Healey to make Tours:
ISU Dairy Farm Data & Activities Coordinator
Visitors who have recently come to the United States or returned from a trip abroad are requested to participate in a five-day waiting period prior to visiting ISU Animal Science Farms.
Special arrangements will be made for groups of pre-school or school age children. These groups may schedule to visit the farm and view the milking process. Tours are by prior arrangement only, and there are some restrictions.
* Note - We will not be providing tours of the Beef Nutrition Farm or the Poultry Farm.
