Job Title: Agronomy Operations

Farmers Cooperative is a full service cooperative with products and services offered in energy, grain, feed, agronomy, and tire departments. We are an aggressive company always looking towards the future and trying to bring more opportunities, markets, and abilities to our local producers. There are 60 locations serving southeast Nebraska and northeast Kansas with our main office located in Dorchester, NE.

A Day in the Life:
An Agronomy Operations specialist will work in all aspects of agronomy and works hard every day to ensure that our agronomy facilities are in top-notch shape. This is a hands-on position requiring you to work outside in all kinds of weather. Your main responsibilities on a day to day basis are housekeeping and maintenance duties to keep our agronomy facilities running efficiently; as well as tendering and loading fertilizer and chemicals for applicators, filling anhydrous tanks, and working closely with agronomy. The position may require you to learn custom application, meaning you will be operating a spray rig in peak seasons and work directly with our patrons.  Safety is always our number one priority and we do everything we can to ensure the safest work environments for our employees, but there are some hazards involved with working in an agronomy facility. These hazards include exposure to fertilizers and chemicals, electrical, fall, and trip hazards. The Agronomy Operations position rewards employees who pay attention, take initiative and work hard every single day to ensure that our customers are treated well and our facilities stay in good condition.

The Cooperative operates under the "all hands-on deck" philosophy when it comes to getting things done.  Therefore, employees are required to perform all other duties as directed by the supervisor.
