Two key board officers are returning for another term at the Manitoba Crop Alliance.
Fred Greig of Reston was re-elected as chair and Robert Misko of Roblin was re-elected as co-chair. Doug Martin of East Selkirk was elected as board secretary.
“I’m honoured to be re-elected as chair and look forward to another year working alongside the MCA board of directors to represent the best interests and productivity of spring and winter wheat, barley, corn, sunflower and flax farmers in Manitoba,” Greig said in a prepared release. “It’s important to me to give back to the farming community as others have done before me.”
