COLOMBIAN DAIRY & BEEF FARMS, and VETERINARIAN PRACTICE

Our partner in Colombia stayed on a very large operation in Florida, and came away greatly impressed by all that the USA has to offer. For years, he has been sending Colombians up to the USA to learn about our dairies. He's thrilled to be working the other way now, receiving people from the USA and other countries that would like to understand and learn about how dairying and vet work are done in his home country.
