Elston Solberg


Elston grew up on a dairy farm near Ryley Alberta where he learned about hard work and tenacity. Hockey, baseball and fishing were key to his youth. He knew early in life that science was his career focus.

He attended Camrose Lutheran College to play hockey where the Vikings won the Canadian Junior College Championships. Later he completed his B. Sc. in Agriculture (Agronomy, U of A) and an M. Sc. in Soils (Elemental Sulphur Fertilizer, U of A). While doing his masters he worked full time as a research associate with mentor Dr. Marvin Nyborg and continued working on many practical research projects for 8 years full time and 7 part-time after leaving to join Alberta Agriculture to work in research and extension for 17 years. During all this Elston moved back to his hometown and served on Village Council for 9 years (8 as Mayor), he was Chair of Beaver Regional Waste Management and Chair of the Joint Councils of Beaver County. Amongst this mess, Elston attempted to complete a Ph. D. on a project involving a detailed understanding of N cycling. While the thesis was not completed all the data was published adding to a still growing body of scientific and popular press. In 2002, Elston left his position as Lead of the Field Crop Development Center (Alberta Agriculture) and started Sun Mountain Inc. and began his affiliation with Agri-Trend. Elston has travelled extensively and has trained people on every continent (except Antarctica ;>) on various facets of crop production, soil science and nutrient management. He has recently established a speaking, teaching, training and publishing company called EarthDirtSoil.

MIKE DOLINSKI, M.Sc., MPM

Michael Dolinski grew up on a small farm in southern Manitoba and moved to Alberta as Provincial Entomologist in 1972 after finishing a Masters in Entomology at the U of M. During his 32 years with Alberta Agriculture he had roles as an entomologist, vertebrate specialist (rats, coyotes, rabies), apiculturist, and finally as an organic agriculture specialist. He retired in 2004 and until August 2018 contracted his services as a Senior Agri-Coach to Agri-Trend Agrology. He joined Taurus Ag. In December 2018 as Director, Science and Innovation.

Over about the last 10 years he became interested in plant physiology and how plants grow and use resources. He speaks widely on many topics related to plant physiology, growth, and nutrition, plus insect pest management using his vast array of photographs which he takes at the microscopic level to train agronomists and farmers.
He is an avid fisherman, fly tier, golfer, grandfather and passionate teacher.

Craig Davidson

From the day Taurus opened its doors in 2001, Craig has been driven to help growers understand the why’s behind the how’s in agriculture. His goal has been to create a different kind of company: one that is focused on promoting innovative, scientifically-backed technologies and leading edge agronomic strategies based on education, knowledge and data. Since then, he has been helping business-minded growers to benefit through Taurus’ fact-first approach to farming. Craig works closely with agri-businesses and manufacturers to determine how their products and services can bring value to the Canadian and global marketplace – and fit within an overall agronomic strategy designed to maximize production and profitability for growers. As President, Craig’s approach to business is about “boots on the ground” versus “feet up on a desk.” He remains passionate about working with progressive farmers and continues to personally lead grower meetings. Craig has spent his whole life in agriculture. Before founding Taurus he served in senior management roles with fertilizer manufacturers on both sides of the border. He continues to be actively involved in a fifth-generation family farming operation in Virden, Manitoba.

How can Craig provide agronomic answers to help you Advance Every Acre?

“We’ve come to realize there are no silver bullets out there. There is no single solution that can turn a good crop into a great crop. Instead, the secret to success comes from a holistic approach where small, sustainable gains add up to large scale success for today’s advanced growers. We are fortunate to have a tremendous arsenal of agronomic tools at our fingertips – with many more in development. Myself, and the entire team at Taurus are committed to helping growers stay on top of these advancements. Together we will help you raise the bar: from the soil on up.”

Jeff Roziere, CET

Prior to co-founding Siere in 2008 with Cathy Snelgrove, Jeff spent over a decade managing and leading various groups in both the private and public sectors. The strengths he brings to his clients are his ability to develop tools and systems that streamline business processes, the keen understanding of how to maximize the use of ERP systems to gain overall system efficiencies, the technical know-how related to operations management, life-cycle costing, financial modeling, and Lean / Six Sigma Principles. He understands the importance of engaging employees in the process of change and in doing so has proven time and time again that employees really are the most valuable resources within any organization

Siere is a specialized business advisory firm working primarily with the owners and leaders of established enterprises in the manufacturing, construction, transportation and agriculture services sectors to develop and implement strategies focused on increasing the financial viability and growth of their operations.As part of our approach, we take the time to understand the vision of the owner, to explore the challenges currently being faced in the operation and then to identify the strategies and tactics, required to close the gap. There is no one solution that will address the challenges faced by an individual company or business. Our approach is simple; we only undertake an engagement if we can agree, to our mutual satisfaction, that the value we create is greater than the prices we charge that client. Value is measured by the client, and when everyone is on the same page, then the results happen quickly.

In working with the team at a team, there are two fundamental philosophies we believe drive results; focus and the measurement of results. Our business advisory process is designed to drive both, and because of the results achieved, many of our clients either choose to stay with us or choose to return, over and over again.

Steven McQueen.

Steve, Owner of McQueen Custom Farm Work Ltd., has been invested in safe & sustainable Canadian Agriculture for over 40 years. Maintaining a balance of family, community and my love for agriculture has opened up so many incredible opportunities. 

As Director, Canadian Business Unit, Emerald BioAgriculture Corporation, my passion is to continually educate myself, and others in managing the plants’ ability, to grow from a seedling through to a consumable product, understanding and utilizing every level of existing and new technology to succeed. 

Unlike people, plants can not walk away from their environment, they just adapt!!”

After completing a degree in Environmental Science at the University of Lethbridge, she worked as a crop consultant in Southern Alberta assisting producers to make efficient and profitable decisions on their farms. In 2015, she furthered her education by attending the University of Saskatchewan to study enhanced efficiency nitrogen fertilizers and their ability to reduce environmental losses compared to their conventional counterpart.
