Hilmar Dairy Farm Internship

The Hilmar Dairy Internship program is accepting applications now through December 10, 2018 at 5 pm PST. The internship is designed for college sophomores, juniors or seniors majoring in dairy science, dairy management, animal science or vet science. They are looking for motivated, hard-working students interested in developing the skills to become herdsperson or dairy manager in California or Texas.

The Hilmar Dairy Internship differs from other dairy internships. There are multiple local dairies hosting interns at the same time. Interns participate in group programs and social activities. Interns will have the opportunity to visit the other farms and learn from each other's experiences. Interns explore a wide variety of dairy skills and techniques that may include milking, feeding, cow comfort, breeding, heifer and calf management, computer systems, and more.
