Grow Your Career with UFC

By: Jenny Krohn, Training and Development Manager 

When you think about a career in agriculture, you may think of a slow paced, relaxing experience that involves leisurely driving a tractor through fields, feeding livestock and permanently having a long sprig of grass hanging from your mouth.

All jokes aside, a career in agriculture is highly rewarding both personally and professionally. Most agricultural jobs require long hours and are reliant on variables out of our control. Yet, those characteristics are also what make a career in agriculture so rewarding. At the end of the day, there is a sense of accomplishment in knowing you and your team got the job done.

If a typical “desk job” is of no interest to you, consider an agriculture career with UFC. How many employers pay their employees for enjoying fresh air while on the job, ‘digging in the dirt’, driving heavy, high tech machinery, and support a work-life balance? A career with United Farmers Cooperative offers this and more! In addition to these advantages, we also offer some of the best benefits in the agriculture industry for our employees and our families which include: medical with HSA and flex spending accounts, dental, vision, 401K with a 4% company match, profit sharing, employee discounts, shop tool reimbursement and more.

If you have a passion for agriculture, strong work- ethic, and commitment to getting the job done, we would love to hear from you. Join our team and be part of our strong, local and growing cooperative built on the foundation of hardwork and dedication to serving our members. We have opportunities

in operations and sales across our core business units: Agronomy, Energy, Farm Equipment, Feed and Grain.


UFC is proud to offer a number of internship opportunities for students who are pursuing an education in agriculture! Our paid internship program is designed to give students an opportunity to complement their education with hands-on experiences and learning. This is also an opportunity for UFC to develop potential future employees. If you are interested in an internship with UFC head to our website www., and complete the internship application. Remember to apply early! Our recruiting process begins in the fall and ends mid-winter.

With our extended weather forecast showing below normal temperatures across much of UFC’s territory we know growers may not be waiting for “ideal” planting conditions. We suggest utilizing 6-24-6 starter fertilizer to help corn and soybeans deal with cooler planting temperatures.
