DEPOIMENTOS DE EX-ESTAGIÁRIOS

" I had the opportunity of participating in the São Bento trainee program in 2012 when I was in the Agrolievestock Technician course. During this program I followed all the farms procedures and the innumerous challenges a dairy farm faces to survive the Market. I acquired experience specially in the calf raising area where, today, I´m responsible for. Its very gratifying to be part of a company that searches for social and environmental responsibility and uses these ideas as its main formulas to produce quality milk and become a reference in the Market."

“I believe that planning in life is on the most important things to do, however the best things happen when we never imagine they will. I´m and administration technique and nowadays I major in Computer Science. My history in the São Bento Farm began in 2014 when I was a trainee during the Technical Administration course. At the farm I could learn all the practical and professional knowledge which made me grow in a way I could have never imagined, I stayed the enterprise for one year as a trainee when I started my major and had to leave the team, it was a year of changes and new plans, yet my heart and mind thought of returning to the farm, all the plans  from the first moment I had contact with the São Bento Farm were to stay there and grow together with that wonderful enterprise. In 2016 I had the opportunity to return and I´m eternally grateful for one more more time being able to wear the enterprise´s jersey and collaborate with my work”

“I was a trainee in the São Bento Farm for just one month in which, although a short period, it was enough to get to know the organizational level of the farm, its team management and the ongoing search for technical and scientific improvement of it´s specific activities. The experience had a great value for those who intend to understand the operational system of a dairy farm as a whole and furthermore a chance to enhance practical knowledge of the dairy activity for those who, as I, wish to complement theoretical knowledge acquired in the school and/or college. Now I feel more secure and prepared to act as an Agronomist in a dairy farm”

“The São Bento Farm was the place I could turn theory into practice and live the day to day reality of a farm. I spent time in each farm sector and not only in one area, from calving till milking, feeding and management. Such an experience made me figure out how each detail makes a difference in the future, each small aspect regarding caring for milking calves till milking the cows. Most of the learning experience as a technician came from this program and I´m thankful for such an opportunity, the attention and trust, without forgetting the the kindness and friendship with all the employees and farm owners, with everyone being a partner always ready to help. I felt as I was in my second home. I´m right now studying to graduate as a Veterinarian and I think on returning to the São Bento as a trainee again. A big hug to all employees and farm owners.

“My name is Pedro Henrique Silvério, I have 18 years old and I´m a technician in the agriculture and cattle production from the Roge Foundation Agricultural School and ex-trainee of the São Bento Farm. My trainee program was in December of 2013, through all the year of 2014 and I also worked in the farm as a floater during January of 2015. Working in the farm as a trainee was very gratifying since I did not only gain knowledge and professional experience, but also life experience! The farm has a very friendly environment where everyone helps each other and collaborate for the farm´s development. I believe the farm only tends to grow each day since there is harmony among employees which dedicate themselves so everything is done the appropriate way. Every employee is very important for the farm´s development and they all helped me learning a lot and developing as a professional. I believe that the farm can become a model for other farmers in the futures in the Paraíba´s Valley region, as soon as it achieves the two certifications it has been working for the last few years. I pretend to return to the farm during my college degree to learn even more and to see what it has become after I have left”
