We’re always excited at Moreno Ranches to work with our new interns. Yolibeth comes to us from Honduras, where she is studying at the Pan American Agricultural School, Zamorano. She brings a passion to the Brahman Cattle industry, and we’re excited to have her work here at Moreno Ranches as we showcase our superior genetics technology for Brahman cattle.
Editor’s Note: As part of our outreach program, we have asked our “Brahman Junior” interns to post a personal experience blog. We asked them about their experience working with Brahman Show Cattle and how to raise a Champion. Our interns share how the importance of genetics combined with training can create a winning Brahman. This is a response.Read More›
We at Moreno Ranches believe in the future. Part of that future is superior genetics, and the constant improvement in 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. We’d like to introduce Juan Jose Guillen, in his own words:
“My name is Juan Jose Guillen. I was born on September 20, 1993 in Choluteca, Honduras. I am a quiet person who likes to be sociable and friendly with people. I have two younger brothers. My parents are from Honduras, where my father is a farmer and my mother is a dentist, but currently she is the mayor of my town. My family is very involved in agriculture. Since I was a kid, my dad taught me everything about the field. I have grown up in the field and it is there that my passion for agriculture began. My father has been working with livestock for many years.. That is probably the reason why I am interested in working in the same field. Because of my interest in continuing to learn about agriculture, I applied to an agricultural university in Honduras. Currently, I am a senior majoring in Agricultural Engineering. My university supports learning by doing, so I work in different areas such as agriculture and livestock, as well as industrial meat processing plants and industrial dairy products. I have no problem with working in agriculture or in an environment related to animals because I grew up in a field environment. I quite like the fieldwork and livestock management. I am currently doing my internship in the United States. I decided on the United States because it has great advancements in genetics as well as cattle reproduction. Thanks to Moreno Ranches, doors have been opened for me to learn more about breeding beef cattle. They have taught me about different methods of breeding and how to use Cattlemax, a cattle management software. Well, this is a great experience that will help me in the future because the cattle sector is developing worldwide.

“My name is Carlos Andres Garnica Varga. I am twenty-one years old. I was born in Los Amates Izabal, Guatemala on June 10, 1994. In addition to my parents, I have two younger brothers. I lived in Los Amates Izabal until I was two years old and then my parents moved to Guatemala City. I was raised in the city, but spent a lot of time in the country fields of Izabal, too. My dad’s business has always been the land–for forestry, agriculture, and beef cattle breeding. As a child, I spent most Mondays to Fridays in the city, but on many weekends and most of my vacations my dad took our family to the ranch to work with cattle and to work in the cyclical business of cutting the trees and then selling the wood and then reforesting.
I like to practice sports such as boxing, riding mountain bike, wakeboarding, and playing water polo; but my biggest passion in life is the same as my dad and grandfather: harvesting the land and creating the highest crop production possible. I also like working with livestock. I went to school in the city from kindergarten until I was fifteen years old. Then I started studying agriculture and animal sciences at the National Central Agricultural School (ENCA, in Spanish), located about eleven miles from Guatemala City, to get my Agronomist degree at medium level. After I graduated as an agronomist at ENCA, I continued my college education at the Panamerican Agricultural University, Zamorano, located at Honduras. It’s a four-year program that includes a learning-by-doing component, which ENCA also had. The program consists of a series of working modules that all students must complete and demonstrate competency. I’m actually in my fourth year of the program and I’m doing my internship in the United States of America, with one of the world’s top American Brahman Cattle Breeders, Moreno Ranches, Inc., in Florida. I’m very glad that the Ranch extended this magnificent opportunity to me to learn more about Brahman cattle breeding, and I’m sure that it’s going to be an experience that will expand my knowledge and help me to have my own cattle ranch in my native country in the near future.
No one is a bigger supporter of programs for the next generation of Brahman cattlemen and cattlewomen than Moreno Ranches. We are proud proponent of programs for Brahman Juniors, such as the Heartland Classic Show, which we sponsored last December, which was the “2nd annual”, the first having been back in December 2013.Read More›
