Cole Eschete joined Oklahoma Farm Bureau as a summer intern beginning June 1.
During his internship, Eschete will assist Farm Bureau staff with various programs and activities while learning more about the grassroots organization’s work on behalf of agriculture and rural Oklahoma.
Eschete is a senior studying animal science with a production option at Oklahoma State University. His roots in agriculture trace back for five generations on his family’s ranch in Bokchito, Oklahoma, where he grew up.
“Agriculture has always been a huge part of my life, given that it makes my family’s living,” Eschete said. “I am most excited to take part in a different aspect of ag through Farm Bureau that reaches across the state and seeing the federation’s role in it all.”
After graduating from OSU in May 2021, he plans to pursue a career in either agricultural sales or insurance while continuing his family’s cattle and hay operation.
