    AGRI-TREND® is pleased to welcome new AGRI-TREND® Agri-Coach®, Kyle O'Donohue to our growing Network!

    My Name is Kyle O'Donohue and I am originally from the city of Toronto. My father grew up on a small farm in eastern Ontario and I would spend all the free time I could on the family farm. Our farm has been in my family for 107 years and I will be the fourth generation to work on it. We were originally a dairy farm, but now we cash crop 600 acres. I attended the University of Ottawa where I received my Bachelor of Science in Biology and a Minor in Computer Science. My mom was a computer programmer and my dad grew up on the farm. So I received a love for both technology and farming and I am excited to be able to merge those two passions. I recently spent six months in New Zealand, where I had the opportunity to work on nine farms all attempting to practice organic sustainable agriculture. I was first introduced to AGRI-TREND in 2012 by Bob Dalton who we hired on our farm to help us increase our land productivity. I think because I am a young farmer who has grown up with technology my whole life I will be able to introduce and explain new technologies well and hopefully take some of the fear out of introducing advancements like Momentum and Variable Rate. I think that the main reason that I would like to join AGRI-TREND and become an Agri-Coach is because of the Network and family mentality that it comes with. The vast knowledge and experience base provided by the AGRI-TREND Network improves my chances of success because many of the challenges I will face have probably already been encountered by at least one other member and I can take advantage of group experience. Because of the Network, I as a younger less experienced person will have a better time selling myself because the farmer can have confidence that he/she is not just getting my opinion but the opinion of a senior advisor. I will continue to reside on the family farm in Berwick Ontario.

    AGRI-TREND® is pleased to welcome new AGRI-TREND® Market-Coach®, Eldon Rindero to our growing Network!

    I was born and raised in the Battleford’s area. I got an early start learning about the grain industry as my father was an Elevator Agent for United Grain Growers.  After graduating from North Battleford Comprehensive High School I started working for Saskatchewan Wheat Pool, while trying to figure out what I wanted to do in life.  As time went on I found that I really enjoyed working in the Agriculture Industry and decided to make it my career.  From 1978 to 2008  I worked for Saskatchewan Wheat Pool and then as of 2008 for Viterra in number of different positions and locations in Saskatchewan over the years.  The last 8 years of my career I worked specifically as a Grain Sales Representative which gave me the opportunity to hone my skills in grain marketing.  I found this to be a very complex and vast field to master, but it was in this area I was most able to help my customers become more profitable and reduce risk in market fluctuations.

    I was contacted by an Agricultural Network Talent Scout to see if I would be interested in becoming a Grain Marketing Coach for AGRI-TREND®.  I knew this was something I still wanted  to do and after learning more about AGRI-TREND® I decided this was a an excellent opportunity to work again in the field I was already very knowledgeable in.  AGRI-TREND® is just the support network I need to become a successful Market-Coach®, with their high caliber research team supplying me with an excellent wealth of marketing information and industry insights in order to help me  advise my customers on how to best maximize their profitability.

    I am excited for this opportunity and look forward to working with all of my clients on a personal level to meet their future needs.
