Spanish for Animal Scientists and Food Animal Producers will help readers gain a working knowledge of Spanish as it pertains to farm or ranch life. Like Spanish for Veterinarians, this guide focuses on practical, everyday Spanish in an animal science setting. Its goal is not to make its readers fluent; instead, it focuses on the nuts and bolts of conversational Spanish, all presented in a style that makes studying fun.


Spanish for Animal Scientists and Food Animal Producers explains simple grammar for the non-linguist and uses the vocabulary specific to animal sciences for examples. The text has been organized to include only one main point per chapter, making the material easy to understand and absorb. Practical cultural topics conclude the chapters, teaching the readers how to chat about the weather, ask about family, and make introductions. The book includes a CD-ROM of pronunciation that can be used with the text or on its own.

From the Back Cover:

Spanish for Animal Scientists and Food Animal Producers will help animal scientists, food animal veterinarians, and food animal producers gain a working knowledge of Spanish as it pertains to farm or ranch life. Like Spanish for Veterinarians, this guide focuses on practical, everyday Spanish in an animal science setting. The goal is not to make readers fluent but to focus on the nuts and bolts of conversational Spanish, all presented in a style that makes studying fun. A Pronunciation CD accompanies the text to provide the opportunity to hear some of the answers spoken by two different native speakers of Spanish.

Spanish for Animal Scientists and Food Animal Producers explains simple grammar for the non-linguist and uses the vocabulary specific to animal sciences in the examples. The verb explanations use verbs such as "to milk, " "to shear," and "to herd." The text has been organized to include only one main point per chapter, making the material easy to understand and absorb. In addition to grammar, other topics and specific vocabulary are included for time and weather, safety and hiring, nutrition, reproduction, and the food animal groups such as cattle, sheep and goats, swine, and poultry. Practical cultural topics that teach the reader how to chat about the weather, ask about family, and make introductions are also provided.

Any English-speaking farmer or rancher who needs to converse with Spanish-speaking producers, workers, and marketers involved in dairy and meat production will benefit from this practical guide.
