Waterman Dairy

Summer Internships for ATI Students:

The Ohio State Waterman Dairy is looking for ATI students who are interested in a paid summer internship and/or employment for 2022.
The OSU Waterman Dairy milks 100 registered Jerseys and raises approximately 165 replacement heifers. The farm facilitates research, gives tours to a wide range of ages, and allows for hands on college course experiences.

This summer the Waterman Dairy looks forward to initiating construction for an automated milking, feeding, & manure removal system from Lely!
Benefits to summer employment gives employees preference to limited fall semester positions if attending main campus in the fall. Limited free, on farm housing, can be provided to students who demonstrate good knowledge and work ethic. These students are held to a higher level of accountability and take on the role of student managers. Connections can be made for students seeking housing off campus for summer.
Besides general dairy chores other opportunities can be tailored to fit internship requirements or employee interests. Students are responsible for chores during the week (3:45am/pm until approx. 8:00am/pm) and every other weekend. Work hours are flexible outside of chore shifts and the farm is located within a mile of campus to allow a convenient commute between or after classes.

Work experience can be gained in the following on farm practices:
Cattle Treatment
Herd Checks
Dairy Reproduction
Heifer/Calf Management
Pasture Management
Equipment Maintenance
Parlor Maintenance
Crop Production
Extension & Outreach
