Beef exporters laud Ritz

Tory Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz was the first recipient of the Canada Beef Export Federation (CBEF) Jim Graham Award. The award, established in 2009, is to be presented annually in recognition of the greatest contribution made to Canadian beef and veal exports.

The now deceased Jim Graham served as chairman of the Alberta Cattle Commission, as president of the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association and as board chair of the Canada Beef Export Federation.
