Jordan and Jennifer Lindgren

Celebrating its 39th year, Canada’s Outstanding Young Farmers’ program is an annual competition to recognize farmers that exemplify excellence in their profession and promote the tremendous contribution of agriculture, and rural Canada.  Nominees may be an individual, couple or managing partner/shareholder of a farm group. To qualify, the nominee must derive a minimum of two-thirds of gross revenue from farming, have an invested interest in the farming operation, and not have reached the age of 40 as of January 1 of this year. Demonstrating leadership in the agricultural industry, nominees are judged according to the following criteria:

  • Progress made in their agriculture career
  • Environmental and safety practices
  • Crop and livestock production history
  • Financial and management practices
  • Contributions to the well-being of their community, province, nation

The 2019 winner will be selected at the Saskatchewan regional event being held in Regina from June 19-20.  The winner will be announced at a luncheon on June 20th at Canada’s Farm Progress Show. They will then represent Saskatchewan at the National Awards Program, to be held in Fredericton, NB in November.

The 2018 Saskatchewan Outstanding Young Farmers were Jordan and Jennifer Lindgren, from Norquay, Saskatchewan. Fourth generation grain and oilseed farmers, Jordan and Jennifer use field size trials to maximize production while minimizing costs on their farm. Each year they partner with agriculture distributors, to host a “Field of Dreams” tour on their farm that showcases new genetics, applications, and fertilizer rates.  They also developed an interactive “Food Farm” day for Grade 3 and 4 students in hopes that they will understand where their food comes from.

Nomination forms for the 2019 Saskatchewan Outstanding Young Farmers’ Program are available on the Saskatchewan Outstanding Young Farmers Website. Nominations must be received no later than Feb. 15, 2019.
