Select Sires Offers Two Dairy Internships

Select Sires Offers Two Dairy Internships
College students interested in sales and marketing, communications invited to apply

Select Sires Inc., last week announced availability of two summer internships at its headquarters facility in Plain City, Ohio, during the summer of 2014. Positions are available within the sales and marketing and communications departments, with applications due by Jan. 1, 2014.

"Both practical work experience within the industry and networking are extremely important in helping college students prepare for full-time employment upon graduation," says David Thorbahn, Select Sires president and CEO. "These internships help introduce students to the industry side of agriculture, while they contribute to the day-to-day operation of the Select Sires federation."

College students pursuing a bachelor's degree in dairy science, animal science, agricultural economics, agricultural communications or related agricultural fields may apply for these internships. Applicants must be familiar with cattle pedigree information. Previous dairy judging team experience is an advantage.

While important for all internships, strong writing and computer skills are a requirement for students working in corporate communications. Dairy marketing interns must have experience working with cattle, and the ability to clip and prepare animals for still photography or video.
