Livestock pioneers to enter Sask. Ag Hall of Fame

Three men well known in the livestock sector will be inducted into the Saskatchewan Agricultural Hall of Fame later this year.

The announcement was made at Canadian Western Agribition Nov. 27.

Going into the hall posthumously are Barry Andrew, one of the founders of Agribition and a cattle and grain farmer from north of Regina, and Dr. Byrnne Rothwell, a veterinarian who had a long career with Agriculture Canada, volunteered with many industry organizations and was dedicated to equine welfare.

Florian Possberg is recognized for his work to develop the province’s hog industry as well as his work at the provincial and national association levels.
