Lyndsey Smith B.A.Sc.

Research Technician 780.340.7082


Lyndsey Smith is a Research Technician with the TACLP. She recently graduated from Olds College of Agriculture & Technology with her Diploma in Agriculture Management majoring in Agribusiness. As a College student, Lyndsey completed her eight-month Directed Field Study (DFS) for her program with the TACLP and was hired full-time afterwards. She was happy to gain both academic and hands-on learning from her education and internship combined — and get to continue learning from mentors at the College.

Lyndsey has been getting a variety of experience with projects focusing on cattle, regenerative agriculture and grazing management since starting with the TACLP in May 2022. She likes the variety of applied research projects and working with different breed associations — plus getting to spend time outdoors. Lyndsey is also interested in talking with producers and helping them find solutions to struggles they have in their operations, as well as learning about new ag technologies that are realistic for producers to utilize.

Lyndsey loves all things agriculture from crops to livestock. She grew up in Camrose, Alta. where she raises purebred and commercial Herefords. Growing up, Lyndsey’s family raised registered quarter horses, but she became interested in cattle and grew her own herd through the 4-H program. She bought her first heifer at age 13, and now owns ten cows. She shows cattle extensively in the summer and enjoys taking part in the Canadian Junior Hereford Bonanza on an annual basis. 

In her free time, Lyndsey enjoys reading, hiking, being outdoors, and spending time with family and friends. She also started the hobby of listening to agriculture podcasts to expand her learning platform and gain insights from a variety of industry leaders.
