The Ohio International Intern Program from The Ohio State University specialises in internships in Horticulture, Agriculture and Turf Grass

Tramore, Co Waterford native Andrew O’Regan is currently a participant on Ohio International Intern Program. Andrew is undertaking his internship on a 40,000 acre tillage farm in North Dakota.

The experience he has gained has been broad – from cultivation work to truck driving, and operating various machinery.

“If you say you want the chance to do X they’ll give you the opportunity if you prove yourself,” he says.

The benefits of participating in the internship, he says, is “it gives you a bigger picture of tillage and crop growing in general. It’s different crops – but it’s seeing how they manage, sell it and store, that’s universal, it’s just getting a different viewpoint. You can learn a lot from that side of things too.”

Andrew’s advice is: If you want to do it go for it. “It’s a great to get away from home and see something new and see a bit of the world.”
