The Strathclair Ag Society has received a $5,000 financial boost, as Lallemand recently announced area farmer Darren Rozdeba as the Manitoba winner of the Hometown Roots Family Contest.

As the Manitoba winner, Rozdeba was awarded the opportunity to select a hometown organization to receive a $5,000 contribution from Lallemand. Rozdeba selected the Strathclair Ag Society. “I farm with my brother Marcel and we decided we wanted the money to go to an ag-related organization. The Strathclair Ag Society has been supporting ag-related work in our community for many years, and it’s an organization we felt could use the money,” says Darren Rozdeba, who farms at Strathclair.

The Hometown Roots Family Contest was designed by Lallemand to support rural roots by giving back to community-based organizations.

“Lallemand recognizes the important role rural farm families play by giving their time and energy to growing food for others. The Lallemand Hometown Roots Family Contest gave us a way to give back to these local communities through the growers who live, work, and play there,” says Colin Sebulsky, Marketing Manager, Lallemand Plant Care.
