James Anderson, Our New Intern and His Interests in Brahman Cattle
Editor’s Note. James Anderson comes to us from Siguatepeque, Comayagua, Honduras. If there’s one thing that James is passionate about it’s learning. We’re excited to get the opportunity to help James learn about Brahman Cattle, as one of the top Brahman Cattle Ranches in the United States. Growing the friendship between people here in the USA and our friends in Honduras is also awfully exciting.
My name is James Anderson; I’m from Siguatepeque, Comayagua, Honduras. I am currently a senior at Zamorano University, Francisco Morazan, in the Agronomic
Engineering program. My whole life I have been working in the family business learning the basic management of livestock, poultry and fish production, as well in coffee and oil palm plantation.
My passion is to work with cattle, and this is why I decided to do my internship at Moreno Ranches to have this great opportunity and be part of this amazing family. I am interested in everything that has to do with Brahman cattle and the Brahman cattle industry, from just the characteristics of Brahman cattle that make them ideal for the hot climates of the Southern United States and where I come from, Central America, to their incredible meat and milk attributes. The Ranch is very interesting because I can see Brahman bulls, heifers, calves and cows and learn about how the animals behave on a day-to-day basis. The Ranch also participates in Brahman cattle shows, and takes many honors, including in Red Brahman cattle, which are some of my favorites.
Speaking of favorites, my favorite hobbies are to watch movies and play soccer, as well to share my free time with friends and family. My goals are to learn about the American culture and the way Brahman cattle are produced and marketed in the United States, meet new people, and expand my horizons in the cattle industry, especially in the embryo transfer technology. Brahman embryos are part of the suite of genetic products offered by Moreno Ranches. I am an ambitious person willing to work hard and learn every day.
