Select Sires has announced plans to offer two summer internships at its headquarters facility in Plain City, Ohio, during the summer of 2006. Positions are available within the dairy-sire and communications departments, with applications due by Monday, Nov. 21, 2005.

"Both practical work experience within the industry and networking are extremely important in helping college students prepare for full-time employment upon graduation," says Dave Thorbahn, Select Sires general manager. "That's why Select Sires and several of its 10 member cooperatives offer hands-on internship opportunities each year. These internships help introduce top 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 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. Sire-department interns must have experience working with cattle, and the ability to clip and prepare animals for still or video photography.
