Veal Farmers of Ontario (VFO) recently announced the re-election of Pascal Bouilly as chair and the election of Cameron Knip as vice chair, at a recent meeting of the board of directors.
Bouilly, the dairy calf supply chain manager with Delft Blue Veal in Cambridge, was appointed to the VFO Board of Directors in 2015 and served as vice chair for two years prior to being elected chair in 2020.
Bouilly is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the farm and the started dairy calves program.
“Driving value for Ontario veal is a top priority for the VFO board of directors,” says Bouilly. “One thing that has not changed during this pandemic is Ontario farmers and their commitment to continuing to do what they do best—producing safe, high-quality food for our customers.”
Knip, who joined the board in 2019, raises veal cattle south of Exeter where he also cash crops with his family.
Judy Dirksen, Sid Atkinson, and Phil Kroesbergen were acclaimed to the VFO board at the 2021 virtual annual general meeting on March 3 and will serve three-year terms.
Returning to the eight member VFO board of directors is Brian Keunen of Palmerston. Earlier in the year, the VFO board appointed Dylan Yantzi of Tavistock to a two-year term to fill a board vacancy as per the requirements and expectations of our regulations. Stratford-area veal producer Kurtis Moesker was also appointed to a two-year term at the recent meeting of the board of directors, filling an additional seat that became vacant mid-term.
