Livestock - Swine/Dairy/Horse

Livestock Internship

Dairy

Modern and efficient dairy practices, backed by rigorous quality assurance, underpin the United States' strength in delivering high-quality, delicious dairy products from farms nationwide to customers' tables around the world.
TOP-Dairy internships aim to expand interns' global education by giving them on-the-farm experience by working directly with dairy. Their responsibilities include raising cattle, milking, diseases treatment and prevention, cleaning barns and growing crops.

Swine

Swine internships take place on large farms with, at times, thousands of sows. The intern should be prepared to perform every task typical for pig production such as breeding, castrating, feeding, vaccinating, tagging and many more. During this on-the-job training, our interns will receive practical swine experience.
