AB Spring 2014 letters

Great to be


ABS: Well, I just finished reading the Winter edition of Atlantic Beef and Sheep cover-to-cover. What a great magazine full of usable information, especially the sheep information, and it’s great to be recognized in a beef magazine as a complementary sheep industry; well, a thriving sheep industry. Please keep up the great publishing work.

Making Maritimers proud

ABS: Hats off to Patrick Holland of Montague. P.E.I., current Maritime Director to the Canadian Junior Angus Association board. In the last issue of Atlantic Beef & Sheep we read of his accomplishments in the World Angus Youth Challenge in New Zealand. Well, guess what, at a recent national Angus Youth Conference, GOAL, in Calgary he earned the Canadian Angus Foundation (CAF) Legacy Scholarship of $5,000.

    This scholarship is provided from the CAF Scholarship program established in 2013. Patrick was one of five finalists selected on academics and the application process. Then there was an interview by Canadian Angus Association members and a moderated panel discussion on industry and Association topics. Patrick topped all hurdles and came home with that award.

    Congratulations Patrick. You make all Maritimers proud with your accomplishments!
