Monday, May 18 began the 2015 summer experience program. Thirteen undergrads from around the country are at Miner participating in three internship programs: dairy farm management, agricultural research, and equine management. These programs are designed to give students some work experience and a taste of what employment on a dairy farm, equine farm, or research facility might be like. Welcome interns! Here's a little bit about this year's group.
