Global Cow helps people find international  experiences. 

They may come into the USA to spend a year as a high school exchange student in New England.  They might be hosts to a Spanish teen for just 3 1/2 weeks in the summer.  Or maybe they are a young veterinarian in Latin America or Africa, who spends a year in Australia–or New Zealand–or the USA.

Global Cow has long focused on international exchange programs, mostly coming into the USA. We’ve helped over 1500 young people come to “learn by doing”, living on American dairy farms and gaining valuable international work experience in their career field.

With Global Cow, our clients have a lot of flexibility. Some programs require a foreign language; some don’t.   Time lengths vary, too. And although we have a special passion for dairy, programs in Australia and New Zealand work with agriculture in general.   

One last thought:  MONEY.  If you are worried about the financial part–especially if you are already paying for college or college loans–yes, you can still travel abroad!  Consider staying longer:  if you can stay for at least six months, or, even better, a full year, there are several choices that have a salary.   You can have your international experience–and leave with some money in your pocket, too.  It’s a great investment in your future!

What We Hear!

What’s been the most fun for us is what we hear back. Our clients come home saying:

“This changed my life”

“I see the world in a different way” 

“I liked it so much I want to go to a second country now!”

(And yes, we are happy to help with that!)
