Where do students usually complete their internship?
Our students have interned at large wheat ranches; fertilizer application and distribution companies; grain elevators and feed mills; and with large and average sized Swine confinement operations, and beef feedlots. We work with farmers and ranchers across the mid-west to best match the student's goals with the internship experience.

What do employers look for in a graduate or an intern?
