Board of directors

A Special Thank you to Dirk Boogerd for leading the way with Ontario Goat and his generous contributions to our organization over the last several years! We wish him all the best as he continues helping the goat industry through other organizations while farming at home!

The Ontario Goat (OG) Board of Directors is comprised of nine active goat producers who have been elected at large by the membership of Ontario Goat each year at the Annual General Meeting. Directors are elected to a three‚Äźyear term on a rotating basis so that the Board does not completely change over in a given year. The elected Directors serve on a voluntary basis at this time.

Over the course of a year, the Board meets approximately once a month either in person or via conference call. As well, various Board members also attend a number industry functions on behalf of the Ontario goat industry, promoting the needs of the sector and ensuring representation of the organization’s members.

The 2022 Ontario Goat Board of Directors includes:

  • Murray Lewis, President, Branchton
  • Amy Vingerhoeds, Vice-President, Hensall
  • Christopher Orr, Vice-President, Listowel
  • Sarah Kay, Secretary, Roslin
  • Kiley Dekraker, Aylmer
  • Michele Bowering, Ilderton
  • Josh Landman, Grand Valley
  • James Korvemaker, Wyoming
  • Wim Vandepol, Ingersoll
