Canadian Limousin Association welcomes new president, directors

Purely Purebred, news from the September 2021 issue of Canadian Cattlemen

The Canadian Limousin Association held their AGM virtual on July 22. A productive discussion was had regarding member retention as well as the breed’s involvement in the commercial beef industry. Sandy Russell gave a presentation on the Canadian Beef Improvement Network and the Canadian Limousin Association made a formal financial commitment to the project.

Outgoing board members Mike Geddes, Matthew Heleniak and Erin Kishkan were thanked by past president Amanda Matthews (Bragg Creek, Alta.) for their years of service. In turn, Matthews was thanked by general manager Laura Ecklund for leading the association through two challenging years. 

The board of directors is pleased to welcome Tyler Stewart (Stettler, Alta.) and Chad Homer (Stittsville, Ont.). The new executive was elected following the meeting and we would like to congratulate president Wayne Burgess (Carstairs, Alta.). Burgess has a long-standing history working for the breed and will be a strong and dedicated leader for the year to come. Ashley Hewson (Unity, Sask.) is vice-president, Travis Hunter (Kenton, Man.) is treasurer. Directors include Cody Miller (Westlock, Alta.) and Carey Hirschfeld (Cando, Sask.).
