TN Visa as an Animal Breeder

What is a Animal Breeder for TN visa purposes?

In general, an Animal Breeder possesses genetic knowledge and conformation for selecting breeding stock that produces superior offspring. Breeders are trusted for producing animals to be used for various purposes such as consumption, companionship, sports, and shows because they carefully propagate valuable traits when they plan for breeding such as high production of milk in dairy cows. They usually facilitate breeding by artificial insemination or live cover, administer medications or supplements, assist with birthing problems, feeding, maintaining enclosures or cages, and keeping detailed health records of animals. The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) provides a detailed breakdown of Animal Breeder related professions through O*NET Online.

In many cases, a U.S. employer is able to sponsor a TN visa holder for a green card through the Permanent Labor Certification Process with the U.S. Department of Labor (PERM). Since the TN visa is a nonimmigrant visa, this process must be handled carefully.
