We are very pleased to announce that Darren Smith has joined our team as an Agronomic Marketing and Business Manager for Southern Alberta and Montana, based out of Coaldale Alberta. 

Darren grew up in Manitoba where he worked on neighboring dairy farms in his youth.  After getting married, Darren and family moved west to Alberta and settled in to the town of Coaldale where Darren is an active part of the community through various committees and boards that he volunteers for.  He studied at the University of Manitoba and received a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture, majoring in economics.  Today Darren holds a P.Ag and has extensive experience gained from 23 years in biological input sales.

“Darren is a welcome addition to the Taurus team,” comments Roddy McNinch, Managing Partner of Taurus, “and will be a great asset to our customer base in southern Alberta, and also extending our reach in Montana.  He has gained the trust and respect from area growers and ag professionals and will enhance our business and the businesses of our customers greatly.  We are excited to have Darren as part of the team and believe he is a great fit for our culture.”  

Craig Davidson, president of Taurus Agricultural Marketing adds, “Our business is built on trust and integrity around agronomy and fertility, with a passion to create positive, sustainable change at the grower level working with our dealers, agronomists, and consultants.  Darren fits this model exceptionally well and brings with him over 26 years of extensive ag knowledge and experience.”

As the agricultural industry continues to expand and accept new technologies from locally developed and abroad companies, the Taurus business continues to grow on many fronts serving an advanced grower who is focused on Advancing Every Acre™ for optimized production and returns. 

Please join us in welcoming Darren to our team!
