PortraitRobert Lynn Hampson Biggart

Lynn Biggart, leader in community, provincial and national organizations, was born May 26, 1935, on the family farm northwest of Cut Knife. He left school in grade nine because illness in the family made it necessary for him to help with the cattle and the chores. In 1972 he became sole owner of the farm.

In 1955 Lynn was a member of the Saskatchewan 4H beef team that won the national 4H judging competition at the Toronto Royal Winter Fair. He became leader of the Wilbert 4H club, a position he held for 24 years. He was president of the Saskatchewan 4H Council between 1964-66, during construction of Camp Rayner. In 1991 he was inducted into the 4H Hall of Fame.

Lynn operated a five section grain and stock farm and ran it so efficiently that in 1966 his family won the Master Farm Family award for northwest Saskatchewan.

Lynn and his wife, Mary, were members of the Saskatchewan Flying Farmers Association starting in 1966. They were key members of the executive, serving as president and secretary at one juncture. The plane was used extensively to move Lynn around the country to the meetings of organizations he served.

He raised purebred Shorthorns for breeding stock and also operated a commercial feedlot. He served as director and vice-president of the Saskatchewan Shorthorn Association. In 1984 he was president of the Saskatchewan Livestock Association. He served a term as president of the Saskatchewan Stock Growers Association and, at the time of his tragic death in a plane crash September 24, 1993, had completed his first year as president of the Canadian Cattlemen's Association.

Lynn served seven years on the advisory council to the College of Agriculture, University of Saskatchewan; was on the Saskatchewan Agriculture Research Fund Board; was chairman of the Agricultural Credit Corporation of Saskatchewan, 1989-92; and was a member of the Ag. Insight Foundation. He helped organize the Wholesome Food Council of Canada and was chairman for three years.

In 1990 Lynn became an honorary life member of the Saskatchewan Institute of Agrologists. Lynn and Mary were named life members of the Saskatchewan Stock Growers Association. They received an honor scroll in 1993 from the Saskatchewan Livestock Association.

Lynn was a person of great energy and ability. He was optimistic about the future of agriculture and worked hard in the belief that good management and open markets would keep the industry competitive.

Sponsored for the Saskatchewan Agricultural Hall of Fame 1996 by the Saskatchewan Flying Farmers Association, the Saskatchewan Stock Growers Association and the Saskatchewan Livestock Association.
