Students Today - Leaders Tomorrow

At TOP AG, interns have a hands-on opportunity to connect classroom learning to the field and gain valuable experience while discovering a potential career path at their local coop. Our coop is small and independent but we have “corporate-level” resources such as our affiliation with Land O’ Lakes to give the best internship experience.   While primarily focused on Agronomy, our interns have the opportunity to gain experience in all departments across the coop. 

Typical Intern Activities and Duties:

Nutrient Testing
Soil Sampling
Weed/Insect Identification
Providing customer service to our growers
Assisting with Answer Plot
Operations experience
Opportunity to travel throughout our service area, visit our 7 locations and explore other pieces of our business such as precision farming, feed mill operations, grain merchandising, and others. 
Interns are typically assigned to various projects throughout the summer and at times, have the opportunity to choose the work they will do. 

Requirements:

Must be currently enrolled as a college sophomore or junior.  Seniors planning to attend graduate school are also welcome to apply.  Major must be in an agriculture-related field.
Ag background, knowledge and/or work experience is preferred.
Training: 
Interns attend 2-day Agronomy Scout training presented by Land O’ Lakes Business Development Services.  Training is held in mid-May after spring semester final exams are completed.  

Compensation:

Interns are hired as paid, temporary Top Ag employees.  Most weeks interns will work 40+ hours.  The duration of internships is mid-May through August.
Top Ag will provide assistance in obtaining college credit for your internship. 

To Apply: Submit your resume and cover letter by email, fax, or standard mail.
