The Silver Spur offers a paid internship for students wanting hands on experience at a large cow/calf operation. The Silver Spur internship is offered year round.  We accept applications from all majors and locations.

This is a paid 10 week minimum internship. Compensation is $1000/month plus housing. Housing is fully furnished, although interns will be responsible for all linen (towels, sheets, pillows, etc.) and food. Most locations will have interns share their house with other interns.

Teleconference interviews will be scheduled in late January or early February with the hiring committee. Applicants that excel during the first interview will be asked to travel to Encampment, Wyoming in March or April for a second interview. We try to schedule the second interview during spring break. For those invited, second interviews are mandatory. If you do not intend to travel to Wyoming, please do not apply.
