Many of you may not know me, so I’ll start at the beginning - I grew up in Holdfast, SK in a family of five, where we had a grain farm just a few miles out of town that my brother and dad still operate. I moved to Regina for my undergrad degree, and I still live here with my lovely wife, Meagan. From 2012 until this fall, I worked in several positions across government; I had the privilege of serving under two administrations in that time, under both Premiers Brad Wall and Scott Moe. More recently, I worked in the offices of the Minister of Agriculture, and the Minister of Trade and Export Development. I guess what I’m saying is: I’m looking forward to getting out of an office and back into the country talking to producers. Listening about where members want to see our organization go, but more importantly, where they see the industry going. I know that we are facing headwinds in the sector, both from drought and increased government regulations, but we’re used to wind here in Saskatchewan. I know the ranchers and farmers in this province will meet the challenge, and I’m hopeful I’ll be able to help in some way - I am looking forward to working for you.
