Matt Poore: Grain Accounting & Finance Intern

You can trace this MaxYield intern’s interest in finance back to his days as the Mount Ayr FFA Chapter Treasurer. Matt Poore is a senior at Iowa State from Mount Ayr, Iowa. He looks forward to his spring graduation and the many possibilities it holds. His MaxYield Finance and Grain Accounting internship and other experiences have opened up more options with his interest, related to grain and finance.

Matt PooreQ: What are your responsibilities as a Grain Accounting & Finance Intern?

With inbound grain, I update contracts, receipts and inventory. With outbound grain, I match our loads against what ethanol plants say and update trucking records. So far, I have learned quite a bit about professionalism working for a business entity.

Q: What are your career goals?

I’m still sorting out my plans, I might go to grad school or enter the workforce. For sure, I want to stay in ag, something with a grain focus would be nice. I am currently studying for law school, so I could potentially specialize in ag law if I pursue it.

Q: What are your hobbies?

Mount Ayr has a lot of good terrain for hunting, so near home I hunt deer and turkeys with a shotgun. I also like to fish.
