The Professional Dairy Managers of Pennsylvania, Pennsylvania Dairymen’s Association and Center for Dairy Excellence offer grants for farms and students to participate in a 10 – 12 week on-farm internship program, intended to provide on-farm learning experiences to the next generation of dairy managers in Pennsylvania.
To qualify for the internship:
- Farms: may be located within or outside of Pennsylvania, but producers must agree to provide the intern with exposure to all aspects of a successful, progressive dairy operation.
- Students: must attend a Pennsylvania university, a Pennsylvania resident attending an out-of-state school or a recently-graduated Pennsylvania resident with an interest in dairy production.

“Not only does an on-farm internship offer so much knowledge and experience, but it also helps a student build a great network and connections throughout the dairy industry.”
