Ontario Sheep Farmers Name Erin Morgan as New Executive Director

GUELPH, ON – Ontario Sheep Farmers (OSF), names Erin Morgan as the new Executive Director as of September 26, 2022. An extensive search for a new Executive Director began in the summer after Jennifer MacTavish, announced her upcoming resignation from the organization.

I am inspired by the amazing ideas I have seen already and your enthusiasm for the opportunities in the sector. I can’t wait to get started.” OSF would like to say thank you to Tom Lewis who served as interim Executive Director during a very busy transition period. Tom will remain in his role as Industry Relations Specialist and Editor of Ontario Sheep News.

at Ewetopia Farms, we decided that it was time to move our bottle lambs from the main barn over to the Coveralls to join their peers. It was also time to move the new lamb and her mom out of the lambing jug. So there was some lamb movement going on today plus we started using the offset disc to prepare an old hay field for next year's crops. Thanks for watching!
