This summer Harvest Land is excited to welcome two summer interns into roles that will offer them a dynamic in-field agricultural experience, strengthen our partnership with Winfield United and allow us to better serve our farmer-members. This week we’d like to introduce you to the two outstanding college students that we’ll welcome this summer.
Garrett Lowes hails from Anderson, IN and will be our Sales and Operations Intern. He is studying Agribusiness Management at Purdue and will graduate in December. Garrett’s role this summer will put him in the heart of ag center operations, affording him a full-circle look at Harvest Land. He’ll work with seed treatment processes, assist in the management and placement of and the data draw from the DTN Smart Traps, collaborate with our sales team to promote fungicide and insecticide with growers, conduct tissue tests with our YieldPro department, and also develop dynamic relationships with our ag sales team and agronomists during on-farm sales calls.
I am excited to gain a more well-rounded knowledge of Harvest Land and to develop long-lasting relations this summer while learning to better serve Harvest Land’s customer base. – Garrett Lowes
Levi Logue is from Liberty, Indiana and will be a sophomore at Purdue in the fall. Levi is a student in the Krannert School of Management where his major is General Management. Levi’s internship will focus on digital marketing strategies and customer engagement. Much of his time will be focused on strategic conversations with customers to better understand their communication preferences, what information they prefer to be delivered from the cooperative system and how timely information affects their buying and operational decisions. Levi will spend much of his time with our Communications Manager and YieldPro Sales Specialists to have these pertinent conversations, gather the data and finally, formulate a plan to move forward with successful customer engagement.
With this internship, I hope to gain valuable real-world experience within the agriculture industry, while also giving me the opportunity to get out of my comfort zone and learn about the different aspects of analysis. I anticipate this internship will give me insight to career opportunities in agriculture. – Levi Logue
We gladly welcome Garrett and Levi to the team and very much look forward to working with these two bright minds to provide them with an educational experience that will only advance their career goals.
