What Previous Interns Have To Say

"My internship exceeded my expectations.  I started this internship having little knowledge about the dairy industry and genetics.  I also did not have a lot of knowledge of who ABS is as a company and where their morals are.  I now feel very educated to make intellectual conversations with people in the industry and the workplace about how to improve the dairy industry genetically.  I have met some great people during this experience and truly been able to understand what it takes to have a career in this industry.  I am proud to have been an ABS intern and to promote what ABS stands for."
