Geoff Strudwick, farm leader and producer of quality dairy cattle, was born on the family farm at Fort Qu'Appelle, 1922. He received his primary and secondary education in that community.

After service in the Royal Canadian Air Force, he came home to farm in partnership with his father and brother. In 1951 he and his wife acquired a farm at Balgonie and set up a dairy. The Strudwicks won the Nollet trophy for highest producing dairy herd in the province on three occasions. Their cattle won championships at Prairie fairs and their breeding animals were exported to eight countries. Their farm was a regular destination for touring groups.

Geoff was prominent in dairy-related organizations across Saskatchewan and Canada. He served as director and president of the Dairy Producers Co-operative, the Saskatchewan Dairy Association, The Dairy Farmers of Canada and four times as president of the Saskatchewan Branch, Holstein-Friesian Association of Canada. He represented dairy farmers on the boards of the Saskatchewan Federation of Agriculture and the Canadian Federation of Agriculture.

He served on the Saskatchewan Milk Control Boardís quota committee and the Canadian Milk Management Committee.

He was presented with a life membership by the Saskatchewan Dairy Association and an honor scroll from the Saskatchewan Livestock Association.

In 1952 he was elected a director of the Regina Exhibition Association and he served a term as president. He was active in formation of Canadian Western Agribition.

This man with concern for improving all aspects of his industry and community life helped organize the Balgonie Artificial Breeding Co-operative. He was chairman of boards of the local rural telephone company, school district and senior citizens association.
