Six National Chung Hsing University students traveled to Manhattan, Kansas, from March 30 through April 6, to represent their university as part of a bilateral student exchange program to learn about Kansas’ agricultural industry and how Kansas agriculture exports benefit both Kansas and Taiwan.

“While we have been sending Kansas students to Taiwan for many years, this was our first time to host Taiwanese students in Kansas,” said Suzanne Ryan-Numrich, international trade director at the Kansas Department of Agriculture. “It was an honor to host the delegation and showcase many different facets of Kansas agriculture.”

While in Kansas, the delegates visited Kansas State University’s animal research units and agronomy farm, Kansas Wheat, Manhattan Commission Company and A&H Farms, Manhattan; the American Royal and Signal Theory, Kansas City, Missouri; Vermillion Valley Equine Center, Belvue; Lazy Heart D Ranch, Westmoreland; Dean and Diane Becker farm, Seneca; Landoll Corporation, Marysville; Hildebrand Dairy, Junction City; PrairieLand Partners, Wamego; Next-Gen Cattle Company, Paxico; and the State Capitol, and Combat Air Museum, Topeka.
