An invaluable opportunity that taught me more than I could ever learn in a classroom. The atmosphere at DFA is welcoming and fun. Employees and member farmers are eager to network and enhance interns’ experience in the dairy industry.

I would say the DFA internship experience was just the right combination of travel, learning general components of the cooperative and industry, but also gaining valuable hands-on work experience.
