Internship Update Jake Compressed

What have been some of your responsibilities as the Agronomy Operations Intern? Throughout the summer I have worked out in the warehouse and delivered chemical for farmers or custom application sprayers. I have also helped with returns on bulk tanks, driven tender truck, and loaded chemical in the field.

Who is your mentor and what have you learned from working with him? Ryan Stokes is my mentor and he has helped me succeed at my internship by teaching me about the warehouse such as storing inventory, organizing supplies, and keeping the area clean.  He has also taught me about filling anhydrous tanks and loading fertilizer.

What is one of the best experiences you have had as a MaxYield intern? I was really grateful that MaxYield gave me the opportunity to obtain my CDL. The company helped me to sign up for a class where I passed and am now certified.

What are some of the intern related activities you have been involved with this summer? This summer the other interns and I had the opportunity to tour other facilities in the agriculture industry. We visited the Murphy Brown Feed Mill in Hobarton, the Green Plains Ethanol Plant in Lakota, and the AGCO factory in Jackson, MN.

 What made you decide to pursue an agronomy internship with MaxYield? After working as the grain operations intern I realized that I really enjoyed the company and my internship experience so I was interested in broadening my horizons in agriculture.

What has made your internship experience with MaxYield Cooperative successful? MaxYield is a great place to work. The company’s workplace is a very friendly environment and the people are very team oriented.
