An articling agrologist with a background in water stewardship is the Saskatchewan Stock Growers Association’s new general manager.
Chad MacPherson, the former Moose Jaw River Watershed Stewards stewardship co-ordinator, was the first source water protection plan co-ordinator in the province, the SSGA said in a release Wednesday.
MacPherson replaces consultant Adele Buettner of AgriBiz Communications, who had served as the association’s interim GM since July last year and will remain on contract through the transition and co-ordinate the SSGA’s annual meeting next month in Saskatoon.

MacPherson holds a B.Sc. from the University of Regina and grew up on a mixed farm at McLean, east of Regina.
