John Harrington – Member #4741
Born in Outlook and raised on a mixed farm at Glenside SK, I have farmed in the area since 1979. Upon completion of an agriculture degree in 1983, I returned to farm full time. My brother Kent and I have grain farmed in partnership since 1997, and have expanded, diversified the crop mix, and been mindful stewards of the resource since.
I have worked part-time in the winter season at the Canada-Saskatchewan Irrigation Diversification Centre since 1986. The wide array of duties required by the Centre have included preparing and writing extension material, planning and participating in conferences and meetings, preparing and presenting material for Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada’s international programs, reviewing research proposals and programs, and preparing strategy and evaluation reports. It has been a privilege to work with many fine people locally, nationally, and abroad.
My partner Jean owns and operates Prairie Farm Brokerage Inc. We continue to farm together in the Glenside area. We have 3 grown children and three grandchildren.
The growth of Riverbend Co-operative to one of the top businesses in Saskatchewan and its recent acquisition of a farm supply business represents an interesting and exciting challenge. I would be pleased to contribute to the future success of dynamic, local enterprise known for its investment in the our communities.
