Congratulatons to Bert Stewart who will be inducted into the Canadian Agricultural Hall of Fame this year. He is known in the dairy industry as one of the top fitters and showman of dairy animals -- around the world.Stewart has also started initiatives like the Dairy 4-H Classic at the Royal, the Dairy Youth Trust Fund, and a number of judging and fitting schools around the world - that continue to this day.
