HAMILTON, Mich. — Michigan Allied Poultry Industries (MAPI) is seeking college students to participate in its inaugural Summer Internship Program. Michigan’s poultry industry has many opportunities for individuals interested in animal science, farm management, feed and nutrition, logistics, and more.
The MAPI Summer Internship Program is a hands-on learning experience. Interns will receive on-farm training and learn in-depth skills.
