Mauricio is the Agriculture Projects Manager based in the Pennsylvania office. He is in charge of the outreach effort with farmers and manages all the best management practices implementation projects for the different Agriculture programs.
Born and raised in Ecuador, Mauricio graduated in 2012 with a degree in Farming Science in a local university in his hometown Quito. Soon after, he immigrated to the U.S. and started working on a 600-cow dairy farm in WI as one of the herdsman and stayed there for approximately 2 years. After having such a great experience with dairy cows, he decided to pursue a Master’s degree in Animal Science with focus on dairy management at the University of Minnesota in St. Paul, MN. In 2016, he graduated and moved to Lancaster PA to work as an Extension Dairy Educator for Penn State Extension. Mauricio offered educational programs that focused on animal health, dairy business management, and training for Latino dairy employees. Lately, Mauricio helped dairy producers determining break-evens and cost of production, which later were used to take informed financial decisions at the farms.
Besides working with farm animals and producers, Mauricio enjoys gardening and growing his own food. He likes to use all the produce of his garden to make his famous chili and other diverse dishes.
