Rob Schill was born and raised on a mixed farm near Balcarres. Agriculture has always been a big part of his life. He raised cattle up until 2009 and was out of the livestock industry for a number of years other than having a small herd of pleasure horses and a draft team. Rob and his wife got back into livestock in 2016 with a small herd of Boer cross goats. They have spent the past couple of years building their herd to 200 head of commercial goats and a small purebred herd of Boer goats. Focusing on good maternal traits and long thick bodied bucks to produce good finishing carcasses.
Rob has worked off the ranch for the past 21 years until just recently when he started working fulltime in his welding business. He has strong desire to do the best he can at what ever he is working on. Whether that is welding for a customer or representing the goat industry as President of the SGBA in its daily activities.
Rob has a strong passion for the goat industry and sees it growing and developing well into the future. Changes are good for the growth of goat industry and we can't rely on the "its always been this way mentality". We need to push the envelope and change to grow!!
My family and I live on a farm outside of Foam Lake, SK where we grain farm and custom graze cattle. I work for Saskatchewan Crop Insurance Corp and compete in Reined Cowhorse and Cutting horse shows. My love of goats started with a little chocolate Nigerian Doe for a yard goat to keep the weeds down. It quickly got out of hand from there! Into a bunch of meat goats as a make work project for the kids, that turned into a full time project for me, back to a handle full of Nigerian does just because I like them. I’m excited to be a part of the SGBA board.
Lisa Schill is a Registered Nurse who grew up in Nova Scotia and moved to Saskatchewan 7 years ago. Working full time and being involved with the Saskatchewan Registered Nurses Association and the Saskatchewan Union of Nurses definitely keeps her busy. Saskatchewan is where she met her husband and started raising goats as a family business about 2 years ago. The herd, which is primarily Boer goats with some dairy cross influence, continues to expand and multiply. She is always interested in continuing to learn and how to give back to the industry.
