Agro DivisionCovid-19 Update,
Ag Division Manager - Pat Chanel
I bring a broad range of experience to Co-op in my role as Ag Manager. In 2004, I graduated from the University of Manitoba with a B. Sc. Agribusiness. I have CCA & P. Ag designations, and I am 4R Nutrient Stewardship certified.
I have 15+ years of experience in the Ag Industry throughout various areas of Manitoba. In addition to growing up on a farm, I have experience in the Crop Protection & Financial Services industries, and for the last 5+ years I have been the Ag Manager for Marquette Co-op. I am proud to lead a strong business that has served the local agriculture market for over 70 years (Marquette)/90 years (Elm Creek).
Our department handles an extensive line of Seed, Fertilizer, Crop Protection and Ag Equipment/Crop Supplies. I am dedicated to leading a professional team you can count on to provide sound agronomic advice for your farming operation. Along with the rest of my Co-op Agro Team, we are excited for the opportunity to learn more about your farm!
Our goal is to help you identify the products and services that will allow you to achieve high yields and profitably grow your operation!

Marquette - Julia Strecker
I am the Agronomist for the Marquette location as of January 2020. Before joining the CO-OP team I previously worked in Hamiota, Manitoba as a Crop Input Associate. I am a Graduate of the Agriculture Diploma Program at the University of Manitoba, with a major in Agronomy. I am currently in the process of obtaining my CCA Certification. While in university I worked as a summer student in South Lakes. I grew up on a grain farm in Beausejour Manitoba, where I still work and help out on during the busy seasons. In my free time I enjoy playing sports of all kinds, outdoor activities and spending time with friends and family. I look forward to growing in my position and cant wait for what this upcoming season has in store.

I am the new Sales Agronomist in Elm Creek for Prairie Roots CO-OP. I have previously worked as a Field Trial Agronomist with Haplotech in La Salle. I have previous experience with agriculture research and agriculture retail in my previous summer positions while I was in school. I grew up on a beef/grain farm south of Holland, MB. Our farm has recently expanded by adding a laying hen barn for egg production. I graduated from the University of Manitoba Agriculture Diploma Program in the Spring of 2019. When I am not busy working or helping on the farm, I enjoy playing sports such as hockey, baseball, golf, among many more. I also enjoy going to the lake or going camping. I am excited to work with producers in the Elm Creek area.

In Person: Once renovations are complete, stop by my office in the new Agro office building across the street from the Elm Creek Coop, or contact me to schedule a meeting on your farm.
I am the Agro Sales Specialist at the Elm Creek Co-op location. As of Sept.1 with the amalgamation between Elm Creek and Marquette, Elm Creek is now excited to offer Ag inputs such as seed chemical fertilizer and enhanced Feed options with Masterfeeds to our members. I have been working diligently with the Marquette Co-op AG team to gain the knowledge needed to serve our Ag community. My experience in these areas stems from a knowledge of dairy, cattle and sheep farming from our family farm. I have been able to share the knowledge I have built not only with our customers to date, but also with others. I have been involved for 8 years in the Elm Creek 4H Cattle Program first as a member and now as a leader. I have committed time and effort into promoting agriculture and ensuring the yearly Carman Fair 4H Beef Cattle show and sale is a big success. I am also dedicated to expanding the Agriculture options in our store and being able to provide you with excellent options and service in these areas going forward.
In Person: Stop by my office at Elm Creek Co-op.
I have been working for the Co-op full-time for just over three and a half years as an Agronomist in the Starbuck region. I was a summer student at the Co-op before moving to full-time after completing my bachelor of science in agronomy with a minor in soil science. I worked at Cargill in Dauphin as a summer student before working for the Co-op. I have my CCA and I am in the process of getting my P.Ag. I grew up in Ochre River, Manitoba. I enjoy hunting, playing sports, as well as snowmobiling, quading, and other outdoor activities.
