AgSafe congratulates B.C. rancher named president of Canadian Cattlemen’s Association

4 May 2018

AgSafe, British Columbia’s agriculture health and safety association congratulates David Haywood-Farmer, recently named president of the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association (CCA).

David Haywood-Farmer is a third generation rancher and his Indian Gardens Ranch in Savona, B.C. has been family owned and operated since 1933. He operates the ranch in partnership with his cousin, working alongside his son and nephew.

One of B.C.s foremost ranchers, Haywood-Farmer is an avid promoter and supporter of workplace safety on ranches. “David is a huge supporter of the work that has been done in the ranching sector, and that includes the implementation of solid safety practices in all areas of ranching.” says Reg Steward, AgSafe Superintendent of Field Operations.

“We would encourage producers to take advantage of programs like these to refresh their awareness of farm and ranch safety. In addition to operating equipment, producers routinely handle livestock in different facilities and under numerous scenarios, including emergency situations. Programs like these ensure safety measures and procedures are adhered to through providing educational and awareness elements to everyday farm and ranch practices.”

Congratulations again to David Haywood-Farmer, the new president of the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association.
