Educators top the pay scales in public sector agriculture

If you’re looking for money in agriculture’s public sector, check out education. University of Guelph educators are the top agricultural earners on the 2008 Ontario public sector salary disclosure list.

At a salary of $207,982, Elizabeth Stone, dean of the Ontario Veterinary College, is one of the university’s highest-paid employees, but she’s not at the top. That honour goes to its president and vice-chancellor, Alastair Summerlee, remunerated to the tune of $434,518 and another $29,495 in benefits.
