Abstract

A survey was developed for seniors in the undergraduate feedlot management class (ASCI 457) at UNL to gauge interest in feedlot management as a profession and familiarity with the Feedyard Management Internship Program. Th e survey found that students feel the internship is beneficial for a future in production agriculture. Th e internship increases confidence of employment and management skills once participation is complete along with gaining experience. Th e number of positions available and the average salary of feedlot managers are underestimated by students. Recruiting efforts appear to be informing students of the program.
