A Skilled Team of Seasonal Employees


Do you know that 20 of the employees who serve the agronomy customers of NuWay-K&H Cooperative are classified as seasonal?

As opposed to full-time, seasonal employees may work 6-9 months of the year. In the spring and fall they make up half of our workforce; in summer, they comprise 30% of our team.

Some of seasonal workers are retired from other jobs. They simply want another source of income besides social security, and they want to keep busy.

Others may have full-time jobs but decide to work for NuWay-K&H Cooperative after hours or on weekends—even during their vacation.

Or a seasonal worker may be partially employed elsewhere and supplement their income by working for the cooperative.

Without an exception, however, I can tell you that all of our seasonal employees take great pride in working for NuWay-K&H Cooperative and in being on our team.

Our seasonal employees do a variety of things, from tendering applicators in the field to delivering seed and chemicals to the farm. Some with prior experience as applicators even spread fertilizer and chemicals. Sometimes we employ them in non-agronomy jobs like power-washing c-stores and painting or setting LP tanks during summer’s 95-degree heat.

“Without them, we could not do what we do for you.”


But in all cases, our seasonal employees are grateful for the opportunity to work for our members. Without them, we could not do what we do for you.

As a full-time employee said recently, “If we didn’t have these guys, I would be doing what they are doing and wouldn’t be able to do the job I’m hired to do.”

So, the next time a seasonal employee of NuWay-K&H Cooperative delivers product to your farm or tenders a dry fertilizer spreader in one of your fields, please thank them.

Thank you to our seasonal employees for all of their work throughout the year.
