Missouri Valley Management Internship

Missouri Valley Management (MVM) is looking for interns who’d like to grow their experience in dairy production and herdsmanship. 

Interns will gain commercial dairy operation experience through completing the day-to-day tasks of animal treatments, fresh cow and maternity, breeding and preg checks, milking and cattle flow, and calf health. Additionally, by working with management issues such as employee relations and learning the fiscal responsibility of management decisions. With this, our goal for interns is to help them understand the daily operations as well as the daily challenges of dairy farming, and the importance of adapting to changes.
