Reed is majoring in Business Administration with a concentration in Agribusiness at Concordia University.

Why did you choose to intern with Farmers Cooperative and why did you choose grain operations?
I needed an internship for my major, and once I started looking, Farmers Cooperative seemed like a place I would look to pursue as a career. I chose grain operations because it felt like a good introduction to the crop side of agriculture, coming from a livestock background.

What has been the best part of your internship so far?
The best part is learning how grain moves through the elevator.

Day-to-day activities in your role:
I just go where I’m needed helping with everything from moving grain to unloading trucks.

Post-graduation Plans:
I will graduate in May of 2025 and I’ll go into some sort of agricultural career.

Fun Fact:
I like to watch movies.
