AMVC Management Services recently welcomed thirteen college students to the company for summer internships. The students hail from six different universities and will be spending their summer gaining knowledge and hands-on experience in many areas of hog farming.

AMVC offers two tracks for their internship program. Most of the students based on-farm and are in the introduction internship track, Swine Time 101. This program gives students hands-on production experience on a commercial sow farm. The other track is for advanced swine students, who are working on specialized projects and traveling to numerous AMVC farms.

Throughout the summer, the students will network with AMVC staff and veterinarians, complete projects and expand their knowledge base of the swine industry.

“We are excited to welcome these students to the team as they will provide great value to the farms. We look forward to seeing them grow professionally and see their knowledge and skill base expand throughout the summer,” said Katie Schimmel, AMVC internship coordinator and recruiter.
