Lars Schilderink - Alta Premier Account Intern

“My time with Alta Genetics has provided me with greater experiences than I could have asked for. I feel very fortunate to have worked with the passionate and results-focused people of Alta, and I enjoyed witnessing the valuable relationships that they have with the dairies that they work with. The unique thing I found about this internship program is that it is designed to help the intern grow; it is not designed to simply hire an extra hand for the summer. The program’s flexibility caters to any level of intensity and responsibility that interns may wish to pursue!”
