Hellos and Good byes

February 7, 2013 - Issue 2

Welcome back to Kristen Phillips, Canola Council of Canada agronomy specialist for Manitoba. She returns from maternity leave. Kristen’s email stays the same, phillipsk@canolacouncil.org, but she has a new cell number: 204-720-6923.

We have a new agronomist for southern Alberta. Autumn Holmes-Saltzman will join the CCC on February 18, coming to us from Ducks Unlimited. Autumn has a B.Sc. in Agriculture (Lethbridge) as well as an Agriculture Production and Management Diploma from Olds. After February 18, you can contact her at saltzmana@canolacouncil.org or 403-360-0206.

Angela Brackenreed, who was covering for Kristen during her mat leave, has left the CCC. Angela will stay in Brandon, working with Dow Agrosciences.

We also say good-bye to 18-year CCC veteran Derwyn Hammond. Derwyn was offered a good opportunity to share his many agronomy talents with Pioneer Hi-Bred. He will stay in Brandon.
