PortraitChristian Tyndall Sutter

One of the founding fathers of the Canadian Western Agribition in Regina, Chris Sutter was born December 1, 1919, in Redvers where he took his schooling. He worked on the family farm until 1941 when he enlisted in the air force.

After returning to civilian life in 1945 he took over management of his fatherís farm. Chris renamed the farm Aqua Hollow Hereford Farm and built up the Polled Hereford herd which developed a reputation for quality. In 1957 he exhibited the first Polled Hereford female ever to win a grand championship in open competition at the Toronto Royal Winter Fair.

Aqua Hollow Herefords have been exported as prime breeding stock to England, Scotland, Spain, Chile, Japan and the United States. With his excellent track record as a Hereford breeder, Chris soon gained prominence as a cattle judge at shows across North America.

At the 1971 Saskatchewan Livestock Convention Chris promoted the concept of a major fall fair in western Canada. He travelled across the West selling the idea that the show should be in Saskatchewan. When the plan succeeded, Chris Sutter was named first president of what became Canadian Western Agribition. The first show was in November, 1971.

He sewed on the Redvers Agricultural Society, the Southeast Saskatchewan Hereford Association, and as president of both the Saskatchewan Hereford Association and the Canadian Hereford Association.

In 1972 he was named "Salesman of the Year" by the Sales and Marketing Executive Association of Regina for his work with Agribition. He was inducted into the Northern International Livestock Exposition Hall of Fame in Billings, Montana in 1970. The Canadian Hereford Association placed his name on its honor roll. In 1985 he was inducted into the Canadian Agricultural Hall of Fame in Toronto. In January, 1988, he received Saskatchewanís highest honor, the Saskatchewan Order of Merit.

With all his national obligations, Chris found time to serve as chairman of the local school board, head of the communityís recreation board and chairman of the board of stewards of Redvers United Church.

"Nominated for the Saskatchewan Agricultural Hall of Fame 1988
by the Canadian Western Agribition, the Saskatchewan Hereford Association
and the Saskatchewan Cattle Breeders Association."
