A Rimbey-area rancher has been named to the board of Farm Credit Canada.
Brenda Schoepp is an author, consultant and professional speaker who has served on several provincial and federal boards and commissions.
She publishes a weekly national newsletter called BEEFLINK and writes a column called Straight from the Hip, which appears in national and provincial newspapers and magazines.
Schoepp was appointed to the FCC board by federal Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz for a term of three years.
“Ms. Schoepp is a successful business owner with a strong commitment to youth and entrepreneurship in agriculture,” said Ritz. “Her knowledge and passion will certainly complement the important work FCC’s board is doing for the sector.”
FCC provides financing, insurance and other business services to producers, agri-businesses and agri-food operations. A Crown corporation, it has a portfolio of more than $24 billion.
