    AGRI-TREND® is pleased to welcome new AGRI-TREND Agri-Coach®, Dave Thompson based in Wanham, AB to our growing Network!

    I was born on the sunny island of Jamaica in the Caribbean. During high school I discovered the passion for agriculture, with this new desire I went on to study my Bachelor's degree in Agronomical Engineering at the University of Ciego de Aliva in Cuba. Later, I earned my Masters in Animal Science at the Swine Research Institute in Havana Cuba. Over the years I have taught Agriculture Science to various educational levels. I worked internationally on large tropical fruit and mixed animal farms. Since moving to Canada I have worked as the Manager of Rural Development (Agricultural Fieldman, Extension Coordinator and Safety Coordinator) for one of Alberta's Municipal Districts. Also I worked as a Precision Agronomist/Safety Coordinator with Farmers Edge. I am passionate about helping producers to succeed in combining the latest science and technology to help produce food and fuel necessary to sustain Canada and the world. I am delighted and excited for the opportunity to be a part of the AGRI-TREND Network and feel confident that I will be able to provide value to my customers. I can relate to my clients as I have spent over 20 years in the industry. By interacting with producers and discussing my experience both locally and nationally, I can help producers to be more efficient and profitable. Being an Agri-Coach with AGRI-TREND is very beneficial as I can utilize the resources provided through the network of other professionals and like-minded agriculturalist to provide the best service for my clients. I will reside in the Peace Region of Alberta and British Columbia.

    AGRI-TREND® Marketing is pleased to welcome Ryan Denis as AGRI-TREND® Market-Coach® based in Tofield, AB to our growing network

    I was raised on the family farm in Domremy, SK, where we crop 5000+ acres of canola, wheat, oats and peas. I spent 3 years at the U of S working towards a degree in Ag Business. I am currently taking classes with Olds College and will be completing my Rural Finance and Entrepreneurship Certificate in May 2015. Even though we moved to Alberta from Saskatchewan in 2007, I continue to be involved in the family farm especially on the business side of things. I spent 2 years buying grain with Viterraand spent the last 3.5 years working as a grain marketing specialist with Cargill. With my past careers, I've learned the importance of risk management and have seen first hand the benefits of a well executed grain marketing plan. I learned about this role with AGRI-TREND through a recruiting specialist. I will do well as a Market-Coach because of the passion I have for grain marketing and risk management, it is what I enjoy doing. As a Market-Coach, I will have the ability to work with AGRI-TREND's vast group of experts which will allow for granular, farm specific recommendations, the unbiased approach will also be important for my growers. AGRI-TREND's network will be available for support and guidance every step of the way, and that is what gives me confidence. The key difference is the team approach, it is important to have teammates to bounce risk management ideas off of each other. It also allows for multiple sets of eyes watching for market cues. I will continue to reside just outside of Tofield, AB and plan on servicing East Central Alberta.
