Difference Maker Nominee: Scott Danner

May 27, 2022


Scott Danner
Many times, our employees demonstrate our core values and make a difference without blinking an eye. Farmers Cooperative truly has a dedicated employee base that takes pride in the work we do and the patrons and communities we serve. With so many employees and locations, these difference making acts don't always get recognized by our peers. Because of that, we are excited to roll out a new employee recognition program to help spotlight the hard work employees demonstrate on a day-to-day basis. This program allows employees to recognize other employees.

Congratulations to Scott Danner, Operations Specialist in Virginia, on being nominated for making a difference at Farmers Cooperative.

What does a typical day look like?
It really depends on the season. March - May I'm generally assisting my guys at the agronomy plant with anhydrous and tending, but I do some dry fertilizer blends at home. June - July we kick up our big fix projects and vaccing if we can. August - September is when we normally get 90% of our trucks transferring grain out and prepping for harvest. Late September - November is harvest. Last but not least, November - December if weather permits, anhydrous and post harvest repairs. January - February I help where help is needed.
 
What do you enjoy the most about working for Farmers Cooperative?
The relationships I have with my coworkers would be the most enjoyable part, but doing different things at multiple locations would be a close second. 
 
What core value do you identify with the most?
Integrity
 
Why did you choose that core value? 
Without integrity, safety would be short cut, customers would be cheated, employees would be used, communities would not matter, and success would not exist. Everything I do for our company and my coworkers starts with my integrity to do it right every time.
 
What do you like to do in your free time?
My favorite past time is coon hunting with my blueticks (Titan and Jake) but I enjoy spending most of my free time with my family.
