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.

Location: Raymond, NE

A Day in the Life of a Custom Applicator:
As a Custom Applicator, you will be working directly with our patrons as an integral part of their operation getting to know and understand their unique fields and growing strategies.  Even though you are an integral part of their operation, a vast majority of your time will be spent inside a rig, behind a windshield, covering acres of fields during peak operational times of the year. You will be responsible for correctly mixing and loading chemicals and water into your sprayer and apply the chemical solution to crops in an accurate and timely manner. You will work with both liquid and dry fertilizer to apply to producers fields.   You will work hard and you will work long hours during peak times.  When you are not spraying, you will be performing maintenance on your equipment, attending training or helping in other aspects of the Cooperative operation. This position is located just outside the Lincoln, NE area and you will work around the surrounding countryside. 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 a sprayer. These hazards include exposure to fertilizers and chemicals (including NH3), electrical, fall, and trip hazards. This is a skilled position requiring a dedicated individual who pays attention to details and takes pride in their work.

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.

What You'll Need to Do This Job:

  • A high school diploma and/or equivalent.
  • A 1A Custom Applicator's License (training provided)
  • The ability to think clearly and problem solve.
  • A desire to be involved in agriculture and work for a cooperative.
  • Physically this position demands that an employee sit for long periods of time.  You will need to be able to
    stand, stoop and kneel when serving equipment or performing maintenance.  
  • This position may require you to climb ladders and get up and down in to large equipment. You must be  able to regularly lift at least 50 pounds.  
  • You will be working around chemicals all day; you will be exposed to outdoor temperatures
  • You must be flexible with your schedule as more hours will be expected during peak seasons including weekends.

This Job Description indicates the general nature and level of work expected.   It is not designed to cover every activity, duty or responsibility required of the employee.   This job description in no way alters "employment-at-will" and is not a guarantee of employment now or in the future.
