The United States has the second largest Spanish-speaking population in the world, and 80% of the agricultural workforce in the U.S. speak Spanish. If you’re interested in building your language skills to help enhance communication within your team and the dairy industry at large, sign up for an eight-week Spanish course this spring. Titled “Spanish for Agriculture” (Dairy Beginners or Intermediate) and led by Katie Dotterer, the Center for Dairy Excellence is offering another round of $100 discounts for dairy producers who sign up for the course being held from April 11 – June 1, 2023.

Thanks to a grant from the Northeast Dairy Business Innovation Center (NE-DBIC), this discount is available to dairy producers in any state.

“I took Katie’s Spanish Beginner’s class along with four of my farm’s team members. We all had varying levels of Spanish comprehension going into the class. I would strongly encourage any person planning to work on a larger dairy farm or currently working on a dairy farm with native Spanish-speaking staff to take Katie’s class. She tailors the class to help you understand the basics of the language and specific vocabulary centered around dairy farms that we use every day. Her format and passion for teaching Spanish and making connections to dairy farming is infectious! During the live part, she encourages participation and questions which makes the learning experience even better.” –Walt Moore, Dairy Farm Owner, West Grove, Pa.
