    AGRI-TREND® Agrology USA is pleased to welcome: John Baute as AGRI-TREND® Agri-Coach® with Reynolds Farm Equipment based in Anderson, IN to our growing network!

    I grew up south of Greensburg, Indiana on a small cattle farm where I learned the value of hard work. Growing up, I played football, basketball, and baseball. I was an All-State quarterback in football and a top 100 Guard in basketball. I attended and graduated from Ball State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Land Management. Since then I have worked for the NRCS as a Soil Conservationist for 1 year and then went to Crop Production Services for almost 4 years as a Crop Consultant. From these positions I learned how to produce more while also conserving resources for the future generations. I learned about the AGRI-TREND position through Reynolds Farm Equipment through a website job posting. After seeing this position I researched AGRI-TREND and thought I would be a good fit as an Agri-Coach. I believe I will succeed because there is nothing more gratifying to me than helping people achieve their goals. I believe the AGRI-TREND program is very valuable to customers, having an agronomist on farm that doesn't sell product is totally focused on what is best for the customer and their business. The program gives me confidence to do a great job for customers because of the training I will receive but most importantly because of the network of agronomist I can be in touch with if a problem arises. I am looking forward to starting as an Agri-Coach in the Anderson, Indiana area where I will be residing.

    AGRI-TREND® USA is pleased to welcome: Lance Wilson as AGRI-TREND® Market-Coach® based in Helena, MT to our growing network!

    Lance was born and raised in North Central Montana where he grew up being surrounded by agriculture. He was actively involved with his grandfather and uncle’s farm and ranch operation, and also worked for various Ag Businesses and producers around Conrad as he was in high school. He was very active in the local FFA Organization and competed in various local and state competitions. He was fortunate enough to be able to compete in several National FFA contests as well. After high school he split time between Montana State University, and MSU Northern in Havre, Montana. While working on several farm operations and other area Agri-businesses he completed an Associate’s Degree in Agricultural Operations Technology. After completing his degree he worked as a custom applicator for fertilizer and pesticide applications with Judisch Spraying Service and CHS out of Conrad, MT. Over the past 4 years he has studied the technical aspect of the commodity markets and has helped Brett and Brenda Wilson build and grow a market advisory service. He has spent this time assisting producers in cash sales and hedge opportunities, as well as trading the futures markets himself. With his understanding of technical analysis, seasonal tendencies, and fundamental news, Lance looks to continue adding profitability to producers operations through cash sales and hedging opportunities. Lance will provide an unbiased opinion on market direction without the emotional tie to the commodities. He feels that AGRI-TREND provides a network of Ag professionals that can assist producers operating decisions and ultimately add value to their bottom line. He is looking forward to helping AGRI-TREND expand into the US market force. Lance lives in Helena where he enjoys spending time in the outdoors; camping, hunting, and fishing. He is married with a son and daughter, and will be working from his home office.

    AGRI-TREND® USA is pleased to welcome: Sierra Cousineau with The Agri-Data Solution™ based in Kalispell, MT to our growing network!

    I grew up in southeast Michigan on my family’s farm. My dad and grandpa grow corn, soybeans, and wheat and my mother ran a greenhouse. The farm has been in operation since 1836. I dabbled in 4-H but found my talents excelled in competitive gymnastics. Attending Ohio State, I studied Agribusiness and Applied Economics and minored in Crop Science. I participated on the National Agri-Marketing Association (NAMA) student academic team for two years at OSU. Upon graduation, I worked in the product marketing department for an equipment manufacturer. I focused on data analysis and insight for various marketing campaigns with the hay and harvesting team. I am excited to join AGRI-TREND and will reside in Kalispell, MT.
