Summer Experience in Farm Management

Location:  Chazy, New York


Work experience for this paid internship in dairy farm management includes milking, herd health, calves, and a variety of field work activities such as tillage, planting, and harvest. The students fit and show a string of dairy cattle at the local county fair. The Summer Experience in Farm Management introduces students to the modern farm as a business, which has as its objective the conversion of plants into milk and meat. All students will be asked to work long hours on occasion, but no more so than would normally be expected on a dairy farm. Students work approximately every other weekend.

The program is available to agriculture and life science students in their junior or senior years of study. Students are encouraged to register for college credit at their home institution, and are responsible for making arrangements for credits.

Applicants are required to provide the following:
  • Completed Summer Experience application
  • Copy of college transcript
  • Two letters of recommendation, one must be from college advisor
  • Letter outlining career goals and reasons for application
