Manitoba Breeder Inducted Into Ag. Hall of Fame

Wilf Chegwin was born and raised in Rossburn, Manitoba. In 1945, he married Thelma Menzies. The Chegwins lived at Shoal Lake where they farmed and raised two children, Betty Anne and Wayne. With one gravel truck, Wilf started a construction business. When he sold the business in 1967, he had 40 employees. Wilf then expanded his Wilfred John Chegwin (1927 - 2010) farming operation by buying 300 Hereford cows and some farm machinery. In 1969, Wilf agreed to use his cows for experimental purposes for the Foreign Breeds Evaluation Program in cooperation with the Brandon Research Station. Wilf was one of the first people in Manitoba to import Simmental cattle from France. He set up a quarantine station close to his farm for the use of the Federal Department of Agriculture. Over the next 20 years, Wilf successfully showed Simmental and Limousin cattle at major shows from the Calgary Stampede to the Toronto Royal. In 1982, Wilf was involved in some of the first embryo transplants. He was a founding member of the West Central Simmental Association. Their annual sales were held in his heated shop for 15 years. Wilf was also a director of both the Manitoba and Canadian Simmental Associations. For many years, he showed a hitch of six Belgian horses at local fairs. Wilf was an honorary life member of the Shoal Lake Agricultural Society and its president from 1991-94. Besides being instrumental in building the new arena at the fairgrounds, Wilf served on the steering committee that planned and oversaw the construction on the new Shoal Lake Communiplex. Wilf was a councillor for the RM of Shoal Lake from 1997-2001 and was vice-chair of the gasification committee which brought natural gas to the RM of Shoal Lake. He was a founding member of the Prairie Mountain Regional Museum Board and the council’s representative. He was also on the board of 16/21 Grain Processors Ltd. which proposed the construction of a farmer-

owned inland grain terminal as a proactive response to changes in agriculture due to the loss of the Crow Rate. UGG ultimately built the elevator and opened the new facility in 2000. Wilf was an investor in EXP Feeds Inc., a feed processing company that was set up to process canola and peas into a protein meal for livestock. In 1987, Wilf received the “Heart of Gold Award,” sponsored by Air Canada and the local newspaper, to recognize his contributions to the community. He also received the A.O. Henuset Memorial Distinguished Service Award from the Manitoba Simmental Association. His contribution to the cattle industry and the Simmental breed in particular has been substantial. Wilf helped to change the composition of commercial and purebred herds throughout the province and the country. Nominated by the RM of Shoal Lake, Wilf was posthumously inducted into the Manitoba Agricultural Hall of Fame on July 12, 2012 in Portage la Prairie. (Source-www.manitobaaghalloffame.com)

Fifth Annual Manitoba Youth Beef Roundup Fifty six of Manitoba’s enthusiastic Junior Cattle Producers attended the 5th annual Manitoba Youth Beef Roundup August 3, 4 and 5th in Neepawa Manitoba, the largest Roundup to date. Excitment in the cattle industry brought out a top notch group of interested cattle producers. The cattle industry is continuing to prosper when 1/3 of the members for the weekend were new to Roundup which is encouraging to see. The weekend started off with a Workshop Day on Friday consisting of workshops presented on ATV Safety, Dave Keely of Pfizer Animal Health and Erin Toner of the Canadian Angus Association . Saturday members exhibited items in educational competitions both individual and Team. One of the highlights of Saturday is the Cook off, where 6 Members on a team prepare a steak and create a theme. Judges Ray Armbruster (President of Manitoba Beef Producers) and Amy Bonchuk (ACC Culinary Arts Graduate) evaluated this competition and were impressed with the taste of the steaks, presentation , themes and costumes. Winning Team was Shania Jack, Jesse Gross, Levi Best, Riley Wirgau, Morgan Staniland, and Lindsey Verwey with a Western Horse Theme, Steak, Potato, and Asparagus Grilled, Apple Pie and Ice Cream and more. Sunday, the members took part in Showmanship in the morning. After Lunch were the Cattle Conformation classes with 103 head of cattle. Judges for the day were Andre Steppler, Miami, and Andrew Kopeechuk, Brandon. Exhibitor Draw for Kirk Stierwalt ( Andes Clippers) was won by Jackie Bremner, Dauphin. The Juniors ages 5- 25 enjoyed weiner roasts, Quiz Bowl and game mixers along with the weekend. It is a great way for Juniors of all cattle breeds to work together , learn new skills, and meet new people. Thanks to everyone who attended, judged, and sponsored our 5th Manitoba Youth Beef Roundup to make it a success. See you next year, and visit our Facebook page Manitoba Youth Beef Roundup.
