Myles Butt of Provost is one of two recipients of Canada’s Outstanding Young Farmers memorial scholarships. Butt and Ontario’s Deanna Ringelberg will each receive $1,000 to support their post-secondary agricultural studies in Canada.
Butt is a fourth-generation farmer, and his family grows 3,000 acres of crops and raises about 700 head of commercial beef cattle. He will begin his bachelor’s studies in agriculture business at the University of Saskatchewan this fall.
“This is a huge honour,” says Butt. “I am thrilled to be one of the recipients of the OYF memorial scholarship, and I really appreciate the money that will help cover the cost of my studies.”
Butt will be formally presented with his scholarship at the OYF national event in Edmonton from Nov. 17-22. Information on the national event can be found at oyfcanada.com.
