Announcement: Recognition of George MacNaughton at South Western Ontario Dairy Symposium
Longtime Dairy Farmers of Ontario employee George MacNaughton will be recognized for his 37 years of service to the dairy industry, at the South Western Ontario Dairy Symposium next Thursday. George started his career with DFO as Field services representative for Oxford County in 1981, and assisted area producers with their quota and milk quality concerns for nine years. He went on to become Field Services Manager and in 2005 he became Director of Production and Regulatory Compliance and later Director of Field Operations. George played a big role in shaping many of the programs that define our industry today, including multiple component pricing, milk quality programs and ProAction. Although his regulatory role meant he could not always be the “good guy” George is held in high regard for his energy, passion and integrity. The Dairy Symposium program starts at 10:00 Thursday February 21 at the Woodstock fairgrounds. The presentation of recognition is planned for 2:15 p.m.
