PortraitFlorian Possberg

Florian Possberg has been a tireless supporter and advocate for the hog industry in Saskatchewan and Canada. Together with his wife Betty, he started his farming career by building and managing a 60 sow operation near Humboldt in 1976.

Florian was one of the founders of Big Sky Farms which grew to become the second largest hog producer in Canada. Big Sky Farms is now owned by Olymel, a large agricultural co-op based in Quebec. In 2009, he partnered with his son Brian to form B&F Polar Pork Farms Ltd.

Darrel Possberg, another son has joined the operation and the expanding farm now includes four of Florian and Betty’s eight children.

Florian has been a leader and an ambassador for the Canadian pork industry through Sask Pork, Canadian Pork Council and Prairie Swine Centre.
