Amanda Bush, of Mt. Gilead, completed an internship this summer with Cargill Feed and Nutrition in Shippensburg, Pennsylvania.
During the project management based internship, Bush worked in a variety of areas of the business, evaluating micro-ingredient suppliers with the Food, Safety, Quality and Regulatory (FSQR) team, assessing marketing and displays for a packaging research project, and working with a commercial dariy team on a large scale supply chain project.
“It has truly been an incredible experience to learn about the feed and nutrition side of agriculture,” said Bush. “I grew up on a grain farm, so each day was an exciting challenge that forced me to learn new things and uncover hidden talents within myself I never knew I had.”
Bush will return to Ohio State in August to continue her degree in agricultural communication. She is the daughter of Anthony and Teresa Bush and Jodi Moss and a graduate of Mt. Gilead High School.
The agricultural communication major at Ohio State prepares students to plan, develop, and implement a communication campaign, using visual media, writing and editing. Students study crisis communication, graphic design, marketing, and journalism so they can spread the word about agriculture.
