    AGRI-TREND® is pleased to welcome: Lacey Gerbrandt, with Emerge Ag Solutions Inc. as an AGRI-TREND® Market-Coach® to our growing Network!

    Lacey was born in Moose Jaw and raised on a mixed farm near Chaplin, Saskatchewan.  Lacey grew up working on the family-farm with her parents, grandparents, and two older brothers.  She always had a love for the industry.  After attending college in Lethbridge, Lacey moved back to be closer to the farm and soon after entered into a career in marketing.  After moving to Eston in 2008, Lacey was overwhelmed with increased travel requirements combined with 3 small children; and she left her marketing position with EMF Nutrition.  She took an accounting position in Eston with Owens & Sweitzer.  She enjoyed her time there; however, she missed being directly involved with growers and making an impact on their operations.  Lacey has been fascinated by the ever-changing agriculture industry and has witnessed the growing demand for support in grain marketing and risk management.  She reduced her work hours with O&S, and attended the University of Athabasca in a full-time Marketing program.  Lacey was very excited to join the Emerge Team in 2013!  She covers a wide territory while staying central to the Eston and Kyle Emerge Ag locations.  She has been focused on providing solutions to growers for improving profitability and reducing risk! Lacey supplements her risk management portfolio with knowledge as a Licensed Advisor for Global Ag Risk Solutions.  Lacey was delighted to partner with AGRI-TREND® Marketing.  She feels AGRI-TREND® is a strong, reliable company; with good values and a large network! Lacey prides herself on staying connected to farming and a genuine passion for the agriculture industry!  She uses this passion to fuel her drive to assist growers in being profitable and successful!!

    AGRI-TREND® is pleased to welcome new AGRI-TREND® Assistant Market-Coach®, Lyle Wiens based in Altona, MB to our growing Network!

    I grew up on a grain farm just south of Winnipeg in Domain. From an early age, I was involved with many aspects of the farm including seeding, pesticide application, harvest and running the seed processing plant during the winter months. Following high school, I completed my undergraduate degree in Agri-business at the University of Manitoba and began a graduate degree in Agricultural Economics with a focus on commodity trade, trade policy and the effects of high food prices on developing nations. I currently reside in Altona with my wife, Ashley, and our new baby girl. I still involve myself with the family farm as much as possible, particularly during harvest. The experience I have working as product support for a local machinery sales company has given me a passion for working with farmers and an ability to relate to the challenges that the family farm faces. One such challenge being finding a balance between work and family. No matter what time of year, there never seems to be enough hours in a day to check off all the items of "the list". Furthermore, new technologies and methods are continually emerging that require time and energy to learn and incorporate. Being a Market-Coach with AGRI-TREND® allows me to lessen some of this burden on farmers as well as to help them become more profitable.
