U.S. Custom Harvesters Prioritize Mentorship And Being a Voice for Farmers

Listen to KC Sheperd talk with David Misener about the U.S. Custom Harvesters.

Farm Director, KC Sheperd, recently had the chance to catch up with the President of U.S. Custom Harvesters, David Misener, at the annual American Farmers and Ranchers Convention in Oklahoma City. Meisner talks about regulations that are impacting U.S. farmers and more.

“It is very frustrating, some of the new rules that we have, especially with H-2A stuff, and we are just not happy about that,” Misener said. “… what they are making us do just isn’t reasonable, and it is not equal in part either.”

Misener has the chance to travel to Washington, D.C. often to be a voice for farmers across the country. In his most recent trip, Misener said he felt that his voice was heard regarding labor requirements.

“We are so enthused when we have someone who wants to work and wants to do,” Misener said.

U.S. Custom Harvesters are mentors of the sort; as Misener explained, new employees, regardless of age, are not only taught about how to run machinery and how to perform well in their specific role, but about life in general.

“We do need help in life, and we do need to be a neighbor,” Misener said. “I am glad that I can say that we as an organization get to do that. We get to help and make that better for all our young people. We get to have that opportunity to do that for the world as well because of all the individuals we get from other countries too.”
