Koslowsky succeeds Lintott at helm of forage producer group

Winnipeg, MB (Feb 9, 2016)--- Killarney-area beef and forage producer Dave Koslowsky was announced as the new Manitoba Forage and Grassland Association (MFGA) chairperson at the recent MFGA Annual General Meeting held in Brandon last week. 
Koslowsky succeeds longtime MFGA chair Jim Lintott at the helm of the forage producer group. Lintott will remain on the MFGA board as past chairman and producer representative. 
"I would like to congratulate Jim for his years of leadership and I am happy that we as a board will continue to benefit from Jim's forage expertise," says Koslowsky, a fourth-year MFGA board member. "I am very excited about the position MFGA is in and the promise of our future. I look forward to working with staff, directors and our partners to continue to showcase the great work of Manitoba forage and grassland producers and ensuring forages and grasslands are well represented in economic and environmental agricultural discussions, partnerships and actions." 
Koslowsky and his wife Rhonda run a 1720-acre mixed farm outside of Killarney that includes a 120-head herd of cattle and the pastures and forage fields necessary to support that herd. Koslowsky is also a board member with Manitoba Beef Producers and recently co-chaired the MBP AGM in Brandon. 
Also named to the MFGA board of directors at the MFGA meeting were Forrest, Manitoba's Ryan Boyd - fresh off his family's well-deserved win of The Environmental Stewardship Award for Manitoba - and Larry Wegner of Virden. Longtime former Portage-area sheep-producer and Winnipeg resident Henry Nelson was re-elected to the vice-chair position.
