New chicken board chairman

Ed Benjamins is the new chairman of the Chicken Farmers of Ontario marketing board. He takes over from Henry Zantingh.

Benjamins has served as chairman before, but was ousted in a major electoral upheaval that saw a number of directors defeated. 

Mark Hermann and Murray Opsteen have been elected first and second vice-presidents.

Tim Klompmaker is the Ontario board’s director on the national agency, Chicken Farmers of Canada. Rick Kaptein is the alternate.

Other directors are Brian Lewis, Tom Beischlag and Jordan Fois.
