    AGRI-TREND® Agrology Welcomes Adam Sheppard as a New Agri-Coach® to our Growing Network!

    Adam grew up on the family grain farm, 10 miles south of Lucky Lake, SK. He played AA Hockey in Rosetown during his peewee and bantam years. He also enjoys fishing and golfing. Adam still farms with his parents, but he did obtain a degree in Ag Business from the University of Saskatchewan. He has spent the last six years working for an ag retail in the province, and he feels he gained very unique experience dealing with different types of people. Before that, he was a summer student with Bayer, breeding canola. He is convinced he will do well as an AGRI-TREND Agri-Coach, because he cares a lot about growing crops, and he is still involved in the family farm, and can relate to his customers. He is also counting on the AGRI-TREND Network for more experience, with their vast knowledge and support of the Agri-Coaches. With all the PhDs and Masters at his fingertips, and his own past experience, he is looking forward to building his customer base. Adam will be building his customer base in the Rosetown and Lucky Lake areas.

    AGRI-TREND USA welcomes Christopher Hinder with Atlantic Tractor to our growing Network!

    Chris grew up in northern Maryland in a small, rural town. He began working on multiple different types of farms, such as grain, dairy, equine, and other kinds of livestock. He started working on a family friend's grain operation in his teens and learned the ins and outs of what it takes to run a successful operation. He truly enjoyed this and helped out on the farm as much as he could before college. He soon realized that crop farming was his true passion and pursued that in college. He graduated from the University of Maryland with a B.Sc. in Agricultural Science and Technology. After graduating, he worked as a Crop Production Manager on a dairy farm in Delaware. He then came back home to help out his family's Ford dealership in Maryland. The position with Atlantic Tractor came about soon after and he was very eager to begin his new career with Atlantic Tractor/AGRI-TREND as an Agri-Coach. He plans to get his Nutrient Management Certification as well, because he understands the importance of managing resources responsibly and sustainably, especially in Maryland. With his knowledge of agriculture and recognizing the importance of customer relations, he will be able to meet all of his client's individual needs. With AGRI-TREND's vast resource/data base and unbiased coaching, Chris can be a great aid to his clients in the Mid-Atlantic region. Chris currently lives in Darlington, MD and is enthusiastic about bringing the AGRI-TREND Services to his territory with Atlantic Tractor.
