Meet Hunter Field! This summer he is the feed sales intern located in Beatrice, NE. 
 
Where are you from?
I’m from Bentonville, AR.
 
Where do you go to college?
I’m attending Iowa State University and majoring in Animal Science.
 
Why did you choose to be an intern with Farmers Cooperative?
I initially interviewed for Purina, and they put me in touch with Micaela. So, I was dual interviewing for Farmers Cooperative and Purina simultaneously but I’m glad I ended up at Farmers Cooperative.
 
What are some of your daily tasks?
I check on my mineral trials and on my cattle I’m looking over for the summer. I’ll also check on pastures and do pasture samples. I deliver feed and prospect new customers as well.
 
What is one thing you’ve learned that you didn’t think you would have?
I didn’t know about all of the opportunities the co-op has to offer.
 
What has been your favorite part of your internship so far?
For me, it’s been having the ability to form my internship into what I want it to be and what I want to learn about. I also like the feeling of independence I have here and being able to hold myself accountable.
 
Moving forward, what job/career path do you see yourself pursuing?
I’ll start graduate school in January, but I definitely see myself in some sort of sales role in the agriculture industry such as feed or pharmaceuticals.
 
What is one fun fact about yourself?
I’ve lived in seven different states.
