Grant Gaschnitz Memorial Ag Knowledge Sponsorship
Grant Gaschnitz was a prominent figure across the Peace Region, and had a significant impact on the agriculture community. He was a champion of strengthening Peace Country farms and ranches, ensuring the region got the attention it deserved, and was especially dedicated to
encouraging and supporting young people in becoming successful and thriving farmers and ranchers.
The sponsorship will be administered by the Peace Country Beef & Forage Association, an organization that was strongly supported by Grant; Grant was a member for many years, sat on the board of directors, and was awarded a lifetime membership. The Peace Country Beef & Forage Association is a non-profit, producer run group that strives to provide leading edge, credible and locally
useful information to Peace Country producers, through applied research and extension programs. The Gaschnitz family would like to continue to offer the support Grant
offered for our young producers for so many years by creating a sponsorship that will support an endeavor that a young Peace Country farmer or rancher wants to pursue that will help him/her to succeed with their operation and further their education and management skills.
