Haney, Johnson named to Top 50 in Ag on Canada's Ag Day


RealAgriculture’s own Shaun Haney has been named one of Canada’s Top 50 in Agriculture, in the inaugural celebration of industry leaders hosted by the Canadian Western Agribition.

Nominated in the Upstarts category, Haney is in good company, joined by the likes of Sandi Brock, Jill Harvie, and Cherilyn Nagel.

RealAgriculture’s resident agronomist, Peter Johnson, was also named to the Mentor category, for his many years of work in extension, including his weekly podcast Wheat Pete’s Word.

Anne Wasko of Gateway Livestock Exchange and lead on the bi-weekly Beef Market Update, was also named to the Mentor category.

The Top 50 list began as a public campaign last November and has five categories: mentors, upstarts, innovators, deal makers, and designated hitters. The full list was announced Feb 23, 2021 on Canada’s Ag Day.

“There is no better way to celebrate Canada’s Ag Day than to recognize the diversity of people, sectors, and ideas that make
Canadian agriculture what it is today,” says Chris Lane, CEO of CWA.
