PortraitNeil McArthur

Neil McArthur, master farmer, purebred Hereford breeder and municipal councillor, was born in Campbelton, Argyle, Scotland in 1900. He came to Canada with his family in 1912.

His father was employed in farming near Cheviot, Sask., and it was near here that Neil continued the schooling he had begun in Scotland.

In 1920 the family moved to the Amazon area, south of Watrous, where Neil farmed in partnership with his father and brother until his marriage to Marjorie Snell of Watrous in 1939. Three years later Neil and Marjorie purchased a farm six miles south of Watrous and launched a grain and livestock operation.

Here they built a registered Polled Hereford herd which became widely recognized as quality breeding stock. Neil was an active promoter of the breed. He served on the Saskatchewan Hereford Association board of directors 1967-70 and was president for 1969-70. He also served on the board of the Saskatchewan Livestock Association.

Active in the community, Neil served as councillor for the RM of Wood Creek No. 261, 20 years, from 1935-55. He was a member of the board of governors of Watrous Union Hospital 1945-65 and sewed as chairman 1958-80.

He was a member of the Watrous Veterinary Services Board and a member of the Manitou Senior Citizens Service Board.

Neil was the original leader of the Watrous 4-H Beef Club when it was formed in 1955. He led the club for seven years and acted as assistant leader for several years after that. He was a member of the Watrous Wheat Pool committee for several years and served as director and secretary of the Venn and Kilmory rural telephone companies.

The well-designed, neatly-kept farmstead of Treelane Farm and the example of their good farming practices brought provincial recognition to the McArthurs in 1966 when they received the Master Farm Family award for southern Saskatchewan.
