SLMOBA Appoints Executive Director

AgriBiz Communications Corp. has been contracted by the Saskatchewan Livestock Markets and Order Buyers Association (SLMOBA) to provide executive and communications services.

Adele Buettner, principle of AgriBiz, has been appointed Executive Director of SLMOBA with immediate effect.

“The Association is embarking on several new initiatives and given the challenges facing the livestock sector, the Board determined the timing was appropriate to engage the professional services of AgriBiz,” SLMOBA president Jeff Jameson noted in making the announcement.

SLMOBA is committed to promoting competitive bidding in the marketing of livestock, and represents auction markets and order buyers from across the province. Established in the early 1970s, the Association has sought to secure uniformity in customs and grade practices in livestock marketing; as well as formulate plans and measures to protect and promote the welfare of the livestock industry.

“One of the priorities of the Association is to enhance safe handling practices that ensure both animals and market staff are treated under the best possible safety standards. The marketing of livestock is a critical part of the Saskatchewan economy, and AgriBiz is very pleased with this new appointment,” Ms. Buettner said.

AgriBiz is a Canadian company based in Saskatoon that provides management, communications and marketing services to several agricultural organizations and businesses.
