Started my WSU internship!
For my Organic Agriculture certificate from WSU, I have to complete a 12 week (20hrs weekly) internship on an organic farm. Luckily we knew the wonderful Burkhalter family and I was able to get an internship on their farm. I am already learning a lot about organic management of calves, artificial insemination, and mastitis care.

Calves love fresh bedding! Bedding has to be organic, so here the Burkhalters use low quality hay instead of buying organic straw.
