Beef advocate Sherri Grant honoured by BMO Celebratin­g Women in Agricultur­e program


BMO and Canadian Western Agribition (CWA) are pleased to announce Sherri Grant as the BMO Celebratin­g Women in Agricultur­e honouree. The program recognizes the outstandin­g achievemen­t of women in the agricultur­e industry from across Canada. The presentati­on was made last night at the Premier’s Reception at the Saskatchew­an Legislatur­e during CWA, one of Canada’s largest agricultur­al events.

Grant and her husband operate Grant Ranch near Val Marie. She’s passionate about consumer advocacy and agricultur­e education, so much so that she co-wrote a children’s book called “Where Beef Comes From” and developed the website beefeducat­ to provide accurate resource materials for those removed from how beef is produced. Grant shares stories and photos about agricultur­e on the Grant Ranch blog and social media. She is also a dedicated conservati­onist and uses these education platforms to bring awareness to grasslands preservati­on and species at risk.

“I feel so honoured. There are so many women in agricultur­e who are contributi­ng and who are just as deserving,” says Grant. “I think it is so incredibly important for everyone to understand more about where their food comes - this is key to the future of our industry. It’s especially rewarding to offer this experience to students and see their eyes light up.”
