Resource for producers seeking labor help

“We’ve seen a lot more of our producers looking towards international labor workforce utilizing visa programs,” she says. “Quite frankly, there’s just not a lot of domestic demand for some of these jobs and our farmers have to have someone in that barn to take care of those animals.”

She tells Brownfield the guide provides farm operators with direction…

“How to get your international worker into the United States,” she says. “What to do when they arrive at the farm? Some of the things you need to be prepared for.”
