Intern Spotlight - Gavin Weichel

Jul 09, 2024

Get to know Gavin Weichel! He’s from Plymouth, NE, and is an agronomy operations intern out of Plymouth as well.

Gavin is attending Concordia University majoring in Agribusiness.

Why did you choose to intern with Farmers Cooperative and why did you choose agronomy operations?
I chose Farmers Cooperative because I like the culture of the company and the sense of community it provides. I knew it would be a good experience interning here because I get to learn from the quality, well-educated employees. I chose agronomy because I felt I had a lot of room to grow and expand my knowledge of the field.

What has been the best part of your internship so far?
I like that I get hands-on experience with everything I’ve been learning. Forming relationships with co-workers and customers that come in has also been fun. I’m looking forward to getting out in the field more to learn about different weeds, diseases, etc.

Day-to-day activities in your role:
I help out in the warehouse, help with customers’ needs, and then I go out with the agronomist to check fields and get some hands-on practice.

Post-graduation Plans:
I plan to graduate in December of 2025. Eventually, I’ll go back to the farm but open to possibilities before or after that.

Fun Fact:
I broke my nose playing coach pitch baseball as a kid and didn’t have the surgery to fix it until I was a sophomore in college.
