Solid Rock Red Angus Hosts Two Summer 2018 Interns

Andrew Acomb and Jesse Feucht, Summer 2018 Interns

Solid Rock Red Angus/River Bend Ranch was very fortunate this year to host two summer interns! This is the fifth year that the ranch has hosted interns and we were blessed to have Jesse Feucht from Princeville, Ill., and Andrew Acomb from Whitesville, N.Y.

Jesse is majoring in Animal Science and Industry, Pre-Vet Option and will be a Junior at Kansas State University, Manhattan, Kan., this fall. Jesse says that livestock is his passion, especially cattle. He runs about 30 head of cows with his brother and has worked for a cow-calf producer part time in Illinois. His career goal is to become a large animal veterinarian while specializing in embryo flushing and transfer, while also running his own herd of cattle.

Andrew is majoring in Agricultural Business Management and will be a senior at State University of New York at Cobleskill, Cobleskill, N.Y., this fall. Andrew grew up on a 1,200 head farrow-to-wean sow farm but also has a cattle background with his family running a herd of Angus cows. Andrew aspires to remain in the field of agriculture, primarily the beef industry and and hopes to move to the western part of the U.S. after graduation to find a career on a ranch or work with USDA.

We want to thank Jesse and Andrew for spending this summer with us and helping us through calving season, A.I. breeding season and every other “season” of work there is to be done on the ranch! We also thank their families for sharing them with us and for coming to visit. Best of luck and blessings to Jesse and Andrew as they finish their college degrees and move on in bettering the agricultural industry!
