Website Schwartz Farms Inc.

SFI takes pride in its mission statement: “Producing quality pork and creating opportunities for rural communities”. The development of an internship program is just another avenue for creating opportunities for rural communities; in this case, by awarding a “real life” experience to college students by having them experience the various employment opportunities in the agricultural sector.

The SFI internship program showcases the following benefits:

-Discover hands-on, “real life” experience throughout the entire production system (breeding, gestation, farrowing, gilt development, nurseries, finishers)
-Explore production focus area of your choice
-Tour research barn, feedmill, & processor, as available
-Shadow vets & managers
-Engage in an independent research project(s), if applicable
-Participate in supervisory and production meetings
-Garner valuable feedback from supervisory staff
-Earn competitive compensation, including housing

Interns must be able to provide proper identification for employment eligibility. Interns will also be expected to comply with the policies established in the SFI Employee Handbook.
Due to Bio-Security, interns cannot work with any other swine or reside with someone who is working in another swine production system for the duration of the Internship Program.
Reliable transportation is required.
Candidates will be seeking a degree with emphasis in swine, animal sciences, or similar concentration, and a career in the pork industry or related profession. Ideal candidates will be in their final two years of study. Two-ten candidates will be selected for the program. Internships are based in Sleepy Eye, MN
