CANADA - The Canadian Pork Council would like to announce its new president, Alberta hog producer Jurgen Preugschas, taking the place of Ontario producer Clare Schlegel after four years at the organization's helm.

Pruegschas, who farms at Mayerthorpe, about 120 km northwest of Edmonton, is joined by a newly elected executive committee including first vice-president Jean-Guy Vincent of Ste-Seraphine, Que., representing the Federation des producteurs de porcs du Quebec and second vice-president Bryan Ferriss of Bowsman, Man., representing the Manitoba Pork Council, reports the Manitoba Cooperator.

Other executive committee members include Curtiss Littlejohn of Ontario, Stephen Moffett of New Brunswick, Herman Simons, also of Alberta, Jerry Gelderman of British Columbia and Florian Possberg of Saskatchewan.

Preugschas' new role follows his recent appointment by the Alberta government as a farmer director of its Institute for Agriculture, Forestry and the Environment, to explore how the province can best tap into demand for environmental goods and services.
