Find out more about each of the winners of AGCO's annual Operator of the Year contest.
Born has spent 22 years and tens of thousands of acres per year either on a sprayer, floater or deep bander. He is a technology expert for all equipment and makes sure all machines are set precisely before any other operators set foot in the cab. He is the lead trainer for current operators and new employees — teaching them the proper methods for using both new equipment and the rest of the fleet. And he makes sure that new employees understand the processes around the co-op. Born takes pride in maintaining the equipment, recording every part purchased and service performed, even repainting equipment himself. When not going above and beyond for his co-op and customers, Born is very active in the region he grew up in, lives and works in. He can be seen supporting many local fundraising events, including the Richland County Pheasants Forever Banquet. When not on a sprayer, he can be found on a snowmobile, motorcycle or anything else with an engine.
