Cora Scheele of Linden is the new chair of the Alberta Farm Animal Care (AFAC) board of directors.
“Alberta Farm Animal Care plays an important role in the province, representing all livestock sectors by communicating the industry’s best practices to producers and sharing our story with the public,” said Scheele, a hatching egg producer.
James Jenkins was acclaimed as vice-chair, Brent Bushell as finance chair, and Casey Vander Ploeg as advisory council chair.
The other board members are Greg Bowie (past chair), Laurie Fries, and Heini Hehli. Darrell Dalton, the registrar of the Alberta Veterinary Medical Association will fill the remaining vacant position until next year’s AGM.
