South Dakota Ag Connection - 03/24/2023

Dairy farmers who want to hire employees from other countries can learn more about using the U.S. visa program during the April 13 I-29 Moo University webinar.

Miguel Rangel, an employee recruiter and visa recipient, will explain benefits and considerations when using the United States visa programs to hire from foreign countries. The webinar runs from noon to 1 p.m. CDT.

‚ÄúListeners will gain a better understanding of what visas are available to them when hiring qualitied employees,‚ÄĚ said Fred Hall, dairy specialist with Iowa State University Extension and Outreach.

This discussion will cover the most common visas available for dairy producers and will include a discussion of situations in which each visa may be used, the benefits of various visas and the requirements to qualify for different visas. Rangel will also discuss the application process, rights and responsibilities of employers and employees and will clarify common misconceptions.

Rangel received his veterinarian degree from the National Autonomous University of Mexico in Mexico City. As an employee recruiter and recipient of a TN visa himself, he knows the process and the industry firsthand.

Prior to that, he spent 16 years working in various aspects of the dairy industry, including managing the ISU Dairy Farm from 2018 to 2021.
