AGRI-TREND GEO Solutions Inc. Welcomes New Geo-Coach, Ryan Goodwin!
Ryan Goodwin grew up on a grain farm near McCord, Sk as the middle child of 5. While growing up, he enjoyed sports, motorbikes, camping and being involved in the farm. Ryan, along with his dad and older brother continue to operate the family farm. Upon graduation from high school, Ryan spent several years working as a farm hand on several grain farms across the province, custom spraying in Manitoba and Saskatchewan, hauling grain in the winters and working ag retail.
After several years working, Ryan turned his focus to education where he attended the University of Saskatchewan and obtained a diploma in agriculture with an agronomy major and then a degree in agriculture with a major in agronomy and a minor in ag business. While attending university, Ryan worked for several grain companies focusing on expanding his knowledge of agronomy. Upon graduating university, Ryan spent time working in agronomic consulting, farming, and more recently, in GPS sales and consulting. It was in this role where Ryan expanded his knowledge and interest in ag technology. Seeing how embracing technology has changed his family’s, and others’ farms, has pushed Ryan to seek out a role where he is able to help other farmers utilize the advanced equipment that is available to increase efficiency and productivity of their farms. He sees that incredible opportunities available in the future and is excited to be a part of this area of agriculture.
When not working, Ryan enjoys just about anything that involves his two sons, Eli, who is two and Will who is ten months old. Next to his family and farming, Ryan’s other main interest is aviation. Ryan holds a private pilots license and enjoys flying, talking about flying, or dreaming about flying.
He will work with and support South Country Equipment John Deere clients and surrounding coaches and their clients.
