Keith Currie, President

Keith Currie, a Collingwood-area hay and sweet corn farmer, was elected as President of the Ontario Federation of Agriculture (OFA) at the 2016 Annual General Meeting. Currie previously served as the organization's Vice President from 2013-2016. His 25+ years of experience with the OFA began with an appointment to the Simcoe County Federation of Agriculture, where he held numerous positions including President from 2004-2006.

With a diploma in Agriculture Production Management from Ridgetown College, Currie returned home to manage an eighth-generation dairy and cash crop farm in Simcoe County with his wife Janice and four children. The dairy herd was dispersed in 2003 and the operation now focuses on production of grains and oilseed, forages for dry hay, along with a sweet corn and gladiolus flower production.

Currie has served as Director on the Simcoe County Holstein Club where he served as County Delegate for Gencor, member of the Dairy Herd Improvement Association, Simcoe District Co-Operatives, Simcoe County Milk Producers, Stayner Farmers Co-Operative and the Collingwood Agricultural Society. Currie currently sits as the board Chair of AgScape(former Ontario Agri-Food Education) and is a member of the Healthy Waters/Healthy Futures review committee for Nottawasaga Valley Conservation Authority.
