food Animal Network Evening (FANE)

Each fall, the Gopher Dairy Club hosts its annual Food Animal Network Evening (FANE). ​

FANE is an event open to all members of the Gopher Dairy Club, the Pre-Vet Club, Agriculture, Education, Communication, and Marketing Club, and Block and Bridle on the St. Paul Campus. The goal of FANE is to provide an opportunity for students to network with organizations on a more personal level than a typical career fair and give industry professionals the chance to meet with the future of the agriculture industry. Internships and jobs are heavily promoted at the event by organization representatives and connections are made to benefit both students and organizations. 

The 2022 Food Animal Networking Evening hosted by the Gopher Dairy Club was a great success. 57 students and 17 organizations were in attendance for the career fair followed by a sit down dinner. Seniors Ashley Hagenow and Mikayla Peper presented to students and representatives about tips and tricks on preparing for an internship/career. Everything went very smoothly, and we are looking forward to another successful FANE in 2023!

The 2022 Food Animal Network Evening was held on October 19, 2022!
