Beef Farmers of Ontario (BFO) has shared that Evan Chaffe has been selected as one of two individuals chosen to represent the North American region on the Global Agenda for Sustainable Livestock (GASL) Youth Advisory Group.
This prestigious appointment provides the opportunity for some of the globe’s top youth leaders to engage in dialogue, consultation, and joint analysis on the environmental, social, and economic challenges facing the global livestock sector.
The Agenda is a partnership of livestock stakeholders committed to the sustainable development of the sector through simultaneous continuous improvement in three main areas: global food security and health; equity and growth; and resources and climate.
Chaffe’s knowledge and experience will serve as tremendous assets as he represents both the beef and broader North American livestock sectors.
He is a recent graduate of the Advanced Agricultural Leadership Program (AALP) and is a past Ontario representative to the Canadian Cattle Youth Council.
Since 2020, Chaffe has served as a policy advisor with BFO and previously spent time in roles with Farm Credit Canada and the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs.
Chaffe grew up on a beef and cash crop farm in Mitchell, Ontario. And... he's rocking a really cool looking Canadian flag pin on his lapel.
