Jessica Davey

Hello, my name is Jessica Davey. I am 18 years old and I am currently finishing my grade 12 year at Delisle Composite School. In the fall I will be starting my first year of animal science at the University of Saskatchewan. I am eager to pursue a post-secondary education in agriculture, and I am looking forward to furthering my knowledge, diversifying my skills, gaining new experiences, and meeting new people!

Our family operation is Rivendale Cattle Company and we are located 50 km south west of Saskatoon. Our herd now consists of 60 purebred Black Angus females as well as commercial Angus, purebred Shorthorn and Shorthorn Plus females. I am passionate about the livestock industry, and dream of owning and operating a split purebred and commercial herd of Black Angus females. I look forward to the future in the Angus industry!

I have been a member of the Saskatchewan Junior Angus Association for five years. I have been on the board for three years and this is my second year being president on the board. I have been a 4-H member for 10 years, and I am currently in the Saskatoon 4-H Beef Club. I have participated in many junior shows and events in Saskatchewan and Canada.

Reegan Frey

Hello everyone, my name is Reegan Frey and I am from Oxbow, Saskatchewan. My family owns and operates approximately 200 purebred Angus and 100 Angus influenced cattle at Freyburn Angus Farms north of Oxbow. I have taken part in showing cattle since I was six years old in the Alameda 4-H Beef Club and this will be my 12th year in the club. Since I have been old enough, I have been devoted to showing livestock at Canadian Western Agribition and I take great pride in my animals. I have enjoyed attending summer shows and GOAL conferences in the past five years and I would strongly recommend to all juniors to attend as many functions as you can.

I am 17 years old and will be graduating from Oxbow Prairie Horizons School this June. In the fall of 2021, I plan on pursuing Agribusiness at Assiniboine Community College in Brandon, Manitoba. I am excited to further my knowledge in the agriculture industry and to have the opportunity to share that knowledge with my fellow juniors. I believe gaining this knowledge will be advantageous for my role in the Angus industry because I will gain a deeper understanding of the business associated with agriculture.

This will be my fourth year on the SJAA board. I spent my first two as a director at large and this will be my second year as vice president. The Angus industry has a lot to offer and I am thrilled to be a part of it. I am looking forward to meeting new members and to work with all the juniors in this incredible industry!
