“It’s been exciting to learn more about the swine industry and the different careers it offers,” said Iowa Select Farms research intern, Kenzie. “I’ve also liked learning how research is conducted on the commercial level.”

Although she lived in Iowa this summer, Kenzie calls LaCygne, Kansas home and will be a junior this year at Kansas State University where she studies animal science and global food systems leadership. Her special interest in research drew her to Iowa Select where she was able to be in a role devoted to swine research.

“It’s hard to narrow my work down to just a few jobs. I did a lot of very different things,” she explained. “Some of the main ones would be assisting in daily chores and caring for pigs at a research site, collecting data for several research trials, and assisting in running data to find results from the research.”

After many hours spent on the road traveling from site to site and her hard work on many different research projects, Kenzie has had a busy summer. We are so thankful for all your efforts and are so glad you decided to join the Iowa Select Family.

Thank you for your dedication to Iowa Select and your research role this summer, Kenzie. We are wishing you all the best in the future!

We have just one more #ISFInterns21 highlight left, so be on the lookout for it coming soon!
