The Saskatchewan Stock Growers Association (SSGA) launched a Beef Drive during the fall of 2016 to help out Saskatchewan’s food banks. Members were able to help by contributing an animal, or by donating cash to defray the cost of processing. The meat is processed into hamburger for distribution through food banks across Saskatchewan. Gord Roger, Beef Business Unit Manager of Elanco Canada, identified SSGA as a potential candidate for Elanco’s 100 Communities initiative. It was announced June 12th that SSGA was selected as a winner.
