West Des Moines, Iowa – October 4, 2012 – The Coalition to Support Iowa’s Farmers (CSIF) is pleased to announce they are accepting applications for an internship position for the summer of 2013.

That is why CSIF offers an internship – to encourage students to take an active role in assisting the livestock industry and gain the knowledge needed to lead the agriculture industry.

The Coalition intern will have responsibilities for numerous projects and communication efforts from May to August, to assist CSIF in achieving the mission “to advocate and help implement on-farm best management practices that assist Iowa’s farm families in raising livestock responsibly and successfully.”
