Grey Bruce Farmers' Week Prize

In 2009 an annual $1000.00 Grey Bruce Farmers’ Week Prize was established in conjunction with the University of Guelph, Ontario Veterinary College (OVC), to recognize new veterinarians entering food animal practices in Grey and Bruce Counties. 

This award recognizes the individual’s past accomplishments, but also encourages their future contributions, and commitment to our rural communities. In the case of there being more than one applicant, the award will be given to the graduate completing the course Health Management in either the Mixed or Food Animal streams, with the highest standing in the Ruminant Health Management rotation.

Eligible students can apply by letter providing proof of employment to the office of the ‘Associate Dean, Students for OVC’, by May 1st of each year.

Past recipients are listed below.

Please note, in 2022 there were no graduates of OVC eligible to receive the award, however it will continue in 2023.
