This past summer, senior in agronomy, Brooke Beinhart, had the opportunity to intern virtually with Land O’Lakes as their Corporate Sourcing Intern. Her daily tasks included attending meetings, following markets, and working on her capstone project. The capstone project she was working on consisted of developing logistical models to help meet the needs of the companies customers and finding more efficient ways to track feed consumption at the dairy farm level.
Jenna Cowan, senior in agronomy, was looking forward to being a Digital Technology Manager Intern with WinField United, but her plans quickly changed when COVID-19 began affecting people across the country.
Instead of working directly with retailers to help integrate WinField United agricultural technology tools into their everyday conversations with growers, Jenna's title has transitioned to Agronomy Strategic Projects Intern. Jenna works as a virtual intern as part of the Sales Talent Development and Training division of WinField United.
