Hello again everyone! My name is Megan Hagemann, and I will be going into my senior year at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville in the fall. I am currently majoring in animal science with a comprehensive emphasis in nutrition. I have recently completed my spring job shadow at Bocker Ruff Grain in Polo, IL for the GFAI Industry Immersion Scholarship.
I had the opportunity to job shadow at Bocker Ruff Grain in the fall of 2022 and learn the ins and outs of the business. This spring, I was able to have more hands-on experience as part of my job shadow. First, I observed morning paperwork to gain more insight into the flow of Bocker Ruff Grain. I was given the chance to run the outbound scale for the day for all the trucks that had unloaded at the elevator. I then had the opportunity to watch a train being loaded as well. I observed the computer system behind the train and was given more information on how the train sector of the elevator works.
I would like to extend a thank you to Bocker Ruff Grain for allowing me to job shadow at their facility for my fall and spring job shadow. I am extremely thankful for all the opportunities and networking events the Grain and Feed Association of Illinois Industry Immersion Scholarship has provided me the past year, and I look forward to my future in this industry!
