Daryl Fransoo is the new chair of the Western Canadian Wheat Growers.
The Glaslyn, Saskatchewan-area producer farms with his father, growing spring and soft white wheat, malt barley, canola, multiple varieties of peas and lentils, and oats. His family also owned and operated a pulse-processing and exporting business in Saskatchewan.
“I am honoured to have the support of the board of directors to move into the role of chair,” Fransoo said in a media release. “The Wheat Growers has been advocates of strong agricultural policy for 50 years and the future looks strong for us.”
Fransoo replaces Jim Wickett, who will remain on the organization’s board.
