Nominations and Elections

The degree to which BFO can provide leadership in responding to industry needs is heavily dependent on the competencies and leadership of the BFO Board of Directors, committee members and BFO representatives to the Canadian Cattle Association (CCA). As a producer driven organization, elected officials of BFO play a key role in identifying and prioritizing issues to better the Ontario beef sector, and provide direction in developing and advancing solutions to address a variety of issues in the areas of economic sustainability, animal health and welfare, food safety, environment, and domestic and export market development. 

BFO is currently calling for nominations for various positions with the BFO Board of Directors, BFO Committees, and CCA representatives. Candidates will be elected at the BFO Annual General Meeting (AGM) taking place on February 22 & 23, 2023 in Toronto.
