St Joseph– For many, hands-on learning serves as the most engaging, interactive, and practical way to retain information. The Talon Internship Program provides college-aged students the unique opportunity to spend their summer on an Angus operation gaining valuable, hands-on experience. Interns will gain extensive ranching knowledge while complimenting their skills as advocates for the beef and agriculture industry. Applications for the Angus/Talon Youth Educational Learning Program Internship are due Dec. 1.

During the internship, recipients visit both the American Angus Association® headquarters in Saint Joseph, Missouri and Certified Angus Beef® LLC in Wooster, Ohio. Additionally, interns get the opportunity to participate in numerous Angus and beef cattle activities off the farm, such as educational events, conferences, field days and much more.

Compensation for Talon interns is provided by the Angus Foundation through the Angus/Talon Youth Educational Learning Program Endowment Fund.
