PortraitW.G. "Bud" Morken

Bud Morken, farmer, farm leader and community worker, was born on the family farm at Sturgis, December 29, 1926. He obtained his schooling at Sturgis and then went on to graduate from the University of Saskatchewan in 1949 with a BSA degree.

With his sons he operated a grain, canola and beef cattle enterprise. He was elected a delegate of United Grain Growers in 1969 and became a director of that organization in 1971. He served on the executive committee and as UGG's Saskatchewan vice-president.

Bud was always an active community worker and his penchant for getting things done made him a useful addition to any board to which he was elected. He served a term as chairman of the Western Agricultural Conference of the Canadian Federation of Agriculture and as a director of the Saskatchewan Federation of Agriculture and the CFA. He was a board member of the Canada Grains Council, The Hudson Bay Route Association and the Canola Council of Canada. He served as vice-chairman of the Saskatchewan Beef Stabilization Board. He represented UGG on the board of the Saskatchewan Agricultural Hall of Fame.

He was a 4-H leader for 25 years and judged at numerous achievement days. He led 4-H grain, beef and horse clubs and the Sturgis Multiple Club. He was president of the 4-H district organization and served on the Yorkton 4-H regional show committee.

His university training was put to good use as he conducted a number of regional agricultural short courses over the years.

In 1966 he received one of 50 Bank of Montreal Centennial $2,000 farm leadership awards for outstanding rural leadership.

Bud was a councillor for the rural municipality for six years and served a term as chairman of the Preeceville Hospital Board. He was active on the board of the St. John-North Prairie Lutheran Church at Preeceville and served several years as chairman. From 1985 until his untimely passing in 1994 he was mayor of Sturgis.
