CALGARY, AB: The Western Canadian Wheat Growers Association is pleased to announce the election of a new president.
At the March Board meeting, Gunter Jochum (Manitoba) was unanimously elected as the next President.
“I’m honoured to have the trust of the Wheat Growers Board of Directors to represent this dedicated group of people. Wheat Grower members across Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba are some the most dedicated people that I have had the pleasure of meeting. Our Board of Directors embodies this dedication towards strong agriculture public policy that supports and builds our agriculture economy,” stated Gunter Jochum.
