Growing up on a farm in rural Ontario, Bachert has a strong understanding of the agriculture industry, and many of the challenges presented to farmers today. As part of this experience he has seen the transition of many small family farms that are now being operated as small or even large business, and an ever growing integration of technology to help drive performance improvements needed to be competitive in the industry. Being able to bring tools and technology to provide solutions, combined with a strong understanding of many of the practical limitations within agriculture, creates a great balance that he hopes can facilitate a real and positive impact.
