ArborOne "boot camp"

We have three new hires that have literally been going through ArborOne "boot camp". I use the term boot camp because these guys are learning about ArborOne and what Farm Credit means in the most hands on ways imaginable.

During their first six months on the job, they have received overviews and training in each department and followed loan applications from beginning to end. An important part of working at ArborOne is understanding our customers. We wanted Ashley, Bradley and Ryan to experience different aspects of agriculture – to be hands on.

That said they recently spent three days working with a turkey farm. On the first day they prepared the clean house for the poults. Day two involved putting the chicks into the house. Not quite as simple as it sounds on paper. On their third day, they helped clean up after the first night of the poults being in and participated in the day to day activities of the turkey farm when birds are in.

This boot camp continues to be a great learning experience for our new employees. By being on site and seeing, as well as participating, in the work necessary, they are gaining an appreciation and greater understanding of the many sectors of agriculture. But the most important thing they gained was the customer’s perspective.
