In the Field Friday: Emily Singleton

By: Nicole McMullen

For our last “In the Field Friday” of the summer we are highlighting Emily Singleton. Singleton is a current Animal Sciences major with an Animal Health specialization at Ohio State ATI. She is from Wilmington, Ohio. She spent some of her time this past summer serving as an orientation ambassador for Ohio State ATI. We would also like to congratulate her for being appointed as the president of the Pre-Vet Club for this school year.

Her internship was with Fine Swine, LLC, located in South Solon, Ohio, as a farrowing (birthing) and gestation (pregnancy) technician. For gestation, Singleton performed heat and pregnancy checks and also bred and treated sows. In addition, she aided in the farrowing of piglets. Throughout her internship she had to keep accurate records for each sow and piglet to ensure animal health and safety were maintained.

Singleton advises students to plan for each week and to be prepared for any major upcoming assignments. “Space everything out and be sure to set aside certain time blocks every day for each of your classes, but don’t forget to set aside time for yourself each day!”
