Editor’s Note:

At Moreno Ranches, we believe in the future. Part of that future is superior genetics and the constant improvement of the Brahman cattle breed through sophisticated animal husbandry technology. Technology is part of that future, a passion for the Brahman breed is part of that future, and so are our youth. As such, we’d like to introduce one of our new international interns, Jose Vasquez.

Jose Vasquez (Costa Rica)- 2022 International Intern

On September 25, 2000, Jose Vasquez was born in Liberia, Guanacaste, Costa Rica. He is currently studying the last quarter of his agronomic bachelor’s degree at the Zamorano Pan American Agricultural School. His parents are involved in agriculture, specifically with sugar cane and rice that provides financial support for the family.

Jose Alonso studied in a high school in his town and worked with his dad where he developed interest and passion for agronomy, animals, and plants. From a very young age, Jose Alonso became involved in the family livestock business and agriculture business with his father and grandparents. He developed empirical skills to work with cattle, which he later reinforced with the technical knowledge acquired during his university studies.

Jose Alonso will be the first member of the family to obtain his bachelor’s degree, thanks to his father’s support. Jose Alonso stands out for being a fighter and has worked hard over the years to get ahead and be a successful person. Jose Alonso is an animal lover and has always been attracted to the Brahman genetics, as it is a spectacular breed. He is also a faithful follower of Moreno Ranches and learned about the Moreno Ranches internship from friends who work there and have told him that it is a unique experience.

Jose is interested in learning about reproduction, feeding, and the exhibitions and sales of the excellent Brahman genetics at Moreno Ranches. He is a hard-working person who likes things to be done well. He is passionate about working hard and being satisfied at the end of the day with the work done during the day. Jose Alonso wants to achieve many of the goals he has set for himself in life, while remaining a humble person. When he starts the internship, Jose Alonso would like to spend as much time as possible taking advantage of such a great opportunity.
Jose Alonso is excited about the experience that is coming ahead and is willing to do everything on his part to make the most of the learning possibilities, knowing that he will perform satisfactorily in the activities assigned to him.

Jose’s Goals:

  • Learn new techniques of production and genetic improvement in the cattle sector.
  • Gain real-work experience with a good quality job.
  • Enrich English skills and learn more about the culture of The United States.
