Top Young Farmers honoured at Canada’s Farm Show

Saskatchewan’s Outstanding Young farmers were announced at Canada’s Farm Show in Regina, Sask. last week. Cyle and Erika Stewart are from the Morse, Sask. area where they raise cows and grass yearlings.

The Stewarts, along with their three daughters, are dedicated to sustainable farming and community involvement, making Pine Ranch a great example of modern farming.

Cyle went to college in Montana with a rodeo scholarship and now helps run several farming and cattle organizations. Erika studied Education at the University of Alberta and loves teaching people about beef farming. She works with various programs to improve farming practices and advocates for the beef industry.

The other nominees were Jeff and Riley Ewen, fourth generation farmers who run E3 Ag Ventures at Riverhurst, near Lake Diefenbaker.

They grow a mix of crops, such as pulses, oilseeds, and grains. Jeff, who studied Agriculture at the University of Saskatchewan, and Riley, a nurse, decided to return to the farm after they got married in 2017.

Jeff now runs a custom farming business with his brother, specializing in growing dry edible beans. They have two daughters, Harper and Ava.

The Stewart’s will represent Saskatchewan at Canada’s Outstanding Young Farmer event Nov. 27 to Dec. 1 in Lethbridge.

The Canadian Outstanding Young Farmers program celebrates achievements and inspires others in the farming community.

Eligible nominees must be farm operators between the ages of 18 and 39 who derive a minimum of two-thirds of their income from their farm operations.

Each year an individual, couple or managing partner/shareholder of a farm group is selected from each of the program’s seven Regional Recognition Events. The successful candidates go on to represent their respective region at the National Recognition Event.
