Manitoba Crop Alliance (MCA) has announced the results of the Corn Committee election.
Elected delegates include Dean Toews (MacGregor), Carl Bangert (Beausejour), Emile Morin (Otterburne) and Hubert Preun (St. Andrews).
A total of 993 ballots were distributed, 192 of those ballots were returned and counted for a 19 percent return rate.
“With a 19 percent return rate we’re thrilled with the response for the Corn Committee election,” says MCA Chair Fred Greig. “We’re looking forward to inducting the new delegates and welcoming the incumbent delegates to all of the Crop Committees and working together to ensure wheat, barley, corn, sunflower and flax are sustainable production choices for Manitoba farmers.”
There were no elections for the Flax, Sunflower and Wheat & Barley Crop Committees as the nominees were elected by acclamation (See below).
The acclaimed and elected delegates will be installed at the first crop committee meetings to be held in January.
At the meeting, the four crop committees will make their director appointments to the Manitoba Crop Alliance board.
The MCA board will be announced prior to the AGM being held virtually on February 11th.
