CentralStar offers a variety of valuable internship opportunities. Find more information below.
CentralStar has several agricultural-related internship opportunities available every summer: five or more in artificial insemination (A.I), two in milk and diagnostic testing, and one in research and development.
As an A.I. Specialist Intern, you’ll experience a rewarding summer of helping dairy and beef customers excel in herd reproduction and productivity. Genetics and reproduction are key performance indicators on farms; so, your expertise in this area is valuable to our producers. You’ll have the opportunity to work with a team of agricultural professionals, including other A.I. Specialists, DHI Specialists, Genetic Consultants, Reproductive Specialists, Area Sales Managers, and/or Team Leaders.
Laboratory Interns are part of a dynamic team that analyze samples and report component and diagnostic results from dairy and beef producers. These two internships provide opportunities to experience a variety of sample-analysis platforms and sample-processing methodology. Interns will discover data is king, and CentralStar laboratories are a source of a lot of valuable information for producers.
The Research and Development Intern helps discover and validate new diagnostic tests utilizing some of the latest molecular and immunological techniques and technologies. The Dairy Herd Information (DHI) milk-testing system has been in place for more than 100 years, but now even more value can be drawn from routinely collected samples to improve animal health and herd management. This intern has the chance to collaborate with researchers, veterinarians, and producers as samples are collected and studies are carried out.
The application deadline for our internships was Oct. 31, 2022.
