Top 4 Under 40 Series: Emma Rutherford

By Brett Ruffell   

Top 4 Under 40

Emma Rutherford of Woodstock, Ont., wears many hats. She’s a broiler and dairy farmer, a dental hygienist and mother of two young children. On her broiler farm, which she’s run since 2016, she’s led several initiatives that have improved flock health, results and profitability.

In the first instalment of Canadian Poultry’s 2022 Top 4 Under 40 podcast series, editor Brett Ruffell talks to Rutherford about on-farm projects she’s led, managing a team and finding balance.

Canadian Poultry launched the Top 4 Under 40 program in 2021 to recognize young poultry leaders. Four finalists, including three farmers and one industry professional, are chosen based on their leadership, innovation and advocacy. We then recognize them in this Top 4 Under 40 podcast series.
