Policy Analyst: Adam Lorenz

Adam is a Farm Income Analyst with the Ministry of Agriculture’s Policy Branch

As Adam Lorenz’s talents in mathematics and financial analysis developed in high school and in his post-secondary education at the University of Saskatchewan, he often wondered if his acumen for numbers would ever translate back to his passion for agriculture. A career in agriculture and a bachelor’s degree in Business Economics at first may seem to be at odds with each other, but Adam is part of a new movement in agriculture that understands the key to success is being every bit as good in the boardroom as it is in the field. And make no mistake, Saskatchewan leads the nation and the world on both fronts. 

Adam is a Farm Income Analyst with the Ministry of Agriculture’s Policy Branch, and his days blend his love of agriculture with his natural abilities for numbers. Most days for Adam involve intensive research, calculations and data analysis because his chief responsibility is maintaining the provincial Farm Income Forecast Model. Maintaining this complex financial model is incredibly important work in understanding the province’s production.  Saskatchewan has more than 40 per cent of all Canada’s crop-producing land and is a leader for the nation in understanding Canada’s ability to produce the world’s food. As the global population booms and more countries develop their economies, there is significant pressure to meet the growing needs for food. These demands on food production also mean many more career opportunities for analytical-minded professionals like Adam. 

Adam has a tenacious desire to succeed and a Saskatchewan work ethic to match. When he’s not contributing to national and provincial agriculture production strategies, he still finds time for his young family and work back on the family farm near Wilkie. Although a background in agriculture is an asset in his career, it’s not essential, as he works with many business-minded young professionals from both rural and urban backgrounds in one of the fastest growing and most essential industries in the world.
