Our Reproductive Management Intern, hailing from Burnt Hills, NY, is Olivia Burnetter. This New York native did not grow up in the dairy industry, but quickly took it upon herself to become immersed at dairies nearby. Currently, she is earning her final 12 credits at SUNY Cobleskill to finish her undergraduate degree in Animal Science.

Burnetter has separated herself from her peers by her ability to speak Spanish, a skill that she hopes to make even stronger throughout the summer. As a Reproductive Management intern, Burnetter will be working with synchronization programs and protocols, heat detection systems, and A.I. technicians on several farms in Arizona. Her internship involves working in conjunction with technicians, tech team leads and district sales managers within her area. Her Spanish speaking skills within this geographic area will serve as a valuable asset as she continues to learn about reproductive management with us in Arizona.

“I love that Alta is about service and creating value rather than just selling a product,” she says. But in June Dairy Month fashion, Burnetter says her favorite dairy product is any type of cheese! Added to any dish, cheese can serve as a delicious way to make an old recipe new.

Our interns create value, build trust and deliver results for the future of our company and we are excited to see where Olivia goes this summer. Welcome, Olivia Burnetter, our Reproductive Management Intern!
