Intro Video Ryan's Articles

Hello, I'm Ryan Floyde. I'm the territory manager in Alberta with Nexeed Inc. I wanted to do a brief background on me, who I am, and where I came from.

I grew up on the family farm in Manitoba, so we had a mix of everything from grain, dairy cattle, swine, swine AI, as well as chickens. From a very young age I was out there getting dirty, getting the chores done, and earning my keep.

I went to Winnipeg where I earned my Bachelor of Sciences in Agronomy at the University of Manitoba and then shortly thereafter I completed my Certified Crop Advisory.

I moved into the industry where I worked briefly with a large line company doing a mix of agronomy and retail. After that I worked with a pedigreed seed retailer where I helped to manage the crops in the field as well as all the steps necessary to produce a certified seed going through the seed cleaning plant. I really learned the ins and outs of what to do and what not to do when when putting products through in terms of producing certified seed, good quality seed and avoiding all of the issues that can rise with contamination.

After that I sold, serviced, trained and installed bulk seed treating facilities for a number of years which helped to really get my hands on in terms of installing equipment and new facilities, all of the issues that can arise, and really got a good feel for everything involved in that from beginning to end.

During the Summer of 2019 I signed on with Nexeed and moved out to Alberta. I am the territory manager out here and my goal is to cover Alberta and be that local presence for all of our customers and prospective customers.

I aim to pull all of the experience that I have acquired through my previous roles to help all our customers that are looking to either fit new equipment into old plants or build completely new plants. Mostly my job is to make sure everyone out here is looked after and that they're well serviced & supported locally.

Nexeed 5 star rating
We are fully running and the only thing I can say is I should have had this machine 8 years ago. Fantastic running unit and the air system in this machine is second to none. We are cleaning oriental mustard at this moment and it is doing great. It was good to see Gary here yesterday also. At this time absolutely pleased. We hope this machine will give us years of service and good results. Thanks for your service.
