Undergraduate Internships at SBS and US Affiliate Locations

August 21, 2013

Posted by SBS in Affiliate News

internsFrom breeding and horse management to laboratory work, Select Breeders Services (SBS) and its affiliate labs in the United States offer various internship opportunities for college undergraduates looking to further their knowledge and skill within the equine industry. SBS is the largest and most professionally managed provider of frozen semen services in the world. In addition, many SBS locations offer a full range of equine reproduction services, and most of the affiliate labs are state of the art veterinary hospitals as well. SBS labs provide excellent teaching and training opportunities at some of the best equine reproduction facilities in the country. There is plenty of exposure to hands on experience and on the job training.

Most students that apply for internships in equine reproduction are driven by a desire to go on to veterinary school or work as breeding managers on a stud farm. Those that enjoy working in the laboratory often go on to graduate education and equine research. Other students are simply looking to expand their knowledge on general horse care and management, herd health, breeding and foaling or horse handling and sales prepping.  Kayla intern

More importantly, internships are not just about gaining work experience.  In some cases an internship can lead to full time employment, or can provide an introduction to new contacts and networking opportunities that may eventually result in employment.  At the very least, new friendships and professional relationships are acquired.

Many internship programs in the SBS Affiliate Network have already selected their intern candidates for the 2021 breeding season.  However, we currently have two summer internships available at our facilities in Maryland.  You can find additional information about these opportunities below.  Also provided are links to other SBS Affiliate Members who offer internship programs so you can begin planning ahead for the 2022 breeding season.
