How to Get a Solid Start in the Thoroughbred Industry

In this week's North American Ag Spotlight Chrissy Wozniak talks to Leslie Janecka, Coordinator for The Kentucky Equine Management Internship (KEMI) program. They discuss some of the many options that today's youth have when it comes to a career in farm management & the thoroughbred industry.

The Kentucky Equine Management Internship program coordinates internships for college students with Central Kentucky horse farms to introduce these students to the broad scope of the industry and the multitude of job opportunities within the industry.

Born in Dallas, Texas with degrees in Animal Science and Agricultural Science from Texas A&M University and graduate work in Reproductive Physiology at Texas Tech University, Leslie managed a full-service Thoroughbred breeding, training, sales prep & racing farm in Fort Worth, prior to accepting the position as Coordinator of KEMI in 2001.
