Based near Pine Lake, Alberta, Smith-Fraser operates NuHaven Cattle Co. She has years of experience on boards, including her current role as Past Chair of the Alberta Beef Producers.

“Kelly Smith-Fraser is well-known in Alberta’s agriculture industry as a smart, driven leader. She’ll provide the leadership AFSC requires to meet our farmers’ and ranchers’ needs, which is more important now than ever.”
