BC Ranch Wins CCA's 2020 Environmental Stewardship Award

One of the highlights for the Canadian Beef Industry conference on Wednesday was the Environmental Stewardship Award presentation.
 
The Canadian Cattlemen's Association selection committee had a tough job again, but selected the Seelhof Family as the 2020 TESA award winners.
 
Ricky and Chad Seelhof from Woodjam Ranch in Horsefly, British Columbia.
 
" We would like to challenge other producers. The benefit we've seen from our environmental enhancements
has paid off ten-fold. Ranching is a difficult industry so if you can get help from any different sectors it's pretty huge.
We took advantage of the many different programs that are out there for environmental enhancement."
 
The Seelhof Family runs a 500 head Black Angus cow-calf operation with cultivated land, native grassland and crown grazing.
 
This year's other Regional TESA nominees included Thomas and Felicity Hagan from Manitoba,
Deer Creek Livestock from Alberta and Paul de Jong from Ontario.
