ABP delegates named to Beef Cattle Research Council executive

Two Alberta Beef Producers’ delegates — Craig Lehr and Fred Lozeman — have been named to the 2022-2023 Beef Cattle Research Council executive committee.

Craig Lehr, an ABP delegate for the Southeast Zone, is BCRC’s new Chair. He was elected to this position in November at a BCRC meeting in Guelph, Ontario.

Lehr, who previously held the role of BCRC Vice Chair, raises cattle with his family at Short Grass Ranches near Medicine Hat, Alberta. This third-generation operation include a cow-calf herd, backgrounding feedlot, and irrigation and dryland farming.

Fred Lozeman of Claresholm, AB joins Lehr on the executive committee, having been elected to his second term as the Council’s Finance Chair.

Lozeman, who is an ABP delegate for the Southwest Zone and has served as a director for six years, runs a mixed farm with his family. In addition to a cow-calf operation and feedlot, they produce grains, forage, and oilseed. With a PhD in diabetes research from the University of Oxford, Lozeman previously worked at the University of Washington as a scientist in a Nobel Prize-winning lab.

Rounding out the new BCRC executive is Vice Chair Ron Stevenson of Walton, ON and Past Chair Matt Bowman of Thornloe, ON.

BCRC is Canada’s national industry-led funding agency for beef, cattle, and forage research. Its producer council includes members representing each provincial beef producer organization that allocate part of the Canadian Beef Cattle Check-Off toward research.
