Congratulations to Amy Schaufelberger for landing a position in the sought-after summer internship program with St. Louis based, agri-marketing agency, Osborn & Barr.

Osborn & Barr (O&B) is a leading marketing communications firm dedicated to agriculture and rural America. Through their summer internship program, O&B helps to foster the next generation of talent in agri-business. The 2011 internship class includes 14 individuals, many of whom are either recent graduates or seniors in college and are pursuing a career in agriculture.

Amy is a member of the Morrow Chapter at the University of Illinois at Urbana. She is majoring in agricultural communications with a minor in animal science and plans to graduate in 2012.

Since establishing its formal internship program in 2005, O&B has grown steadily and enhanced the professional development track and on-the-job training that interns encounter over the course of 10 weeks. The high level of talented candidates vying for a spot in the program continues to be very deep, and a number of candidates each year have been able to evolve the internship into a full-time position at the agency.

"This generation of professionals has career opportunities in agriculture that my generation never thought possible,” says Michael Turley, CEO, O&B. "Working in the agriculture sector is extremely rewarding, and it’s encouraging to see the future of our industry in the hands of such passionate and capable young professionals.”
