A new chair was elected for the National Sheep Network during a recent meeting held in Ontario.
Ryan Greir from Alberta was elected chair for the organization, with Pierre Lessard of Quebec, elected vice-chair.
Currently, Greir is vice-chair of the Alberta Lamb Producers and farms east of Strathmore, Alta.
“It’s an exciting time to step into the chair position for the National Sheep Network,” says Greir, “having finalized a memorandum of understanding with a clear mandate to provide an effective national voice for the business of sheep farming.”
Lessard farms in Tingwick, Que., and is president of Les Eleveurs d’Ovins du Quebec.
Also on the National Sheep Network executive are Darlene Stein (Alberta), Marc Carere (Ontario), Heather Little (Ontario) and John Hemsted (Ontario).
