There is a new president for the Leeds County Cattlemen’s Association, and he is ready to get involved and maybe shake things up a bit.

Ray Korten of Lost Woods farm in Toledo, Ontario is the new president. He spoke to Eastern Ontario AgriNews at the Leeds County 4-H awards night. 

“We’re here after 10 years of cattlemen being silent,” said Korten. “We’re here to help and assist 4-H or any other cattlemen, in Leeds, with whatever they need. We’ll do the best we can to assist.”

Also on the board is Korten’s wife Tina Korten, and Tim Stoodley.

Korten says he has a few plans he would like to see implemented in 2024. “We’d also like to help establish a 4-H Beef club in Leeds,” said Korten.
