“Listeners will gain a better understanding of what visas are available to them when hiring qualitied employees,” 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.

Rangel has also been the owner and operator of Optimum Dairy Consulting and Recruiting since 2021, specializing in maximizing profits in dairy operations and the recruiting of skilled professionals. 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.
