Today I finished my summer internship at the farm. Everything turned out really well and I'm glad I got to come here. I got to learn about training heifers and dairy farming. It was interesting for me to see what goes on in a dairy farm and to learn about the kind of work that is done. I was surprised to see that there weren't many people who signed up for the summer internship. Most of the people there were work-study. It is something that I think would awesome for other students to take.
The past couple of weeks there has been talk of getting the majority of the buildings at the farm redone. In the last few days we have had the people that will be doing the construction come in and check things out before they start. So we've been quite busy moving the cows and heifers around so they can come in and start. It's left us with a lot to do since most of the heifers don't want to go to a different building or to a different pasture. Most of the heifers will be out in the pasture so we've been trying to figure out where to put them all.
