CIAQ Awards Prix Claude-Hayes to Two Québec Personalities
Saint-Hyacinthe, April 28, 2010 – The names of the the Prix Claude-Hayes 2010 recipients were unveiled during the annual CIAQ ceremony chaired by Guy Lavoie with General Manager Normand Renaud and guests in attendance. Prix Claude-Hayes, created in 2009 for the celebration of CIAQ’s 60th anniversary, recognizes those who contributed to the evolution and the reputation of the enterprise.
The two recipients, respected members of the Québec agricultural scene, are Guy Charbonneau, a well-known breeder at Ferme Vachalê in Sainte-Anne-des-Plaines, and Dr. John Ellis Moxley, former researcher and professor at McGill University’s Macdonald College and founder of the Dairy Herd Analysis Service (DHAS).
CIAQ Directors, its Management, personnel and their guests were honoured to greet Guy Charbonneau on the occasion. Dr. Moxley could not attend, but pictures taken at his home a few days earlier were shown for all to view.
The two recipients have greatly inspired CIAQ personnel to give their utmost and to provide services to measure up to Quebec breeders’ expectations.
The award was named after Claude Hayes, an agrologist and former CIAQ General Manager (1967-1982). Mr. Hayes devoted his entire career to artificial insemination. His leadership and dynamism contributed to the development of CIAQ activities throughout Canada and the world. Mr. Hayes was also a member of the CIAQ Board of Directors for 10 years.
