Jenny Ellert

Jenny Ellert was born and raised on a mixed farm and ranch in Southern Alberta, grew up working alongside family and ranching on the Milk River Ridge. After travelling to Australia to work on a large cattle station for a year after high school graduation, I came back to start post-secondary education. I obtained a diploma from Olds College in Land Classification and Reclamation then transferred to the University of Lethbridge to complete a Bachelor of Science degree in Agriculture Studies: Biology stream. I am presently a self-employed agronomist working for a several agricultural producers (both dryland and irrigation) in Southern Alberta. From April to freeze up in the fall you will find me out in the field. I love being able to work closely with growers helping them manage their agronomic needs, as they are very diverse from farm to farm. In the off season I enjoy learning as much as I can and working with growers to plan for the next cropping season. Aside from work I take great pride in raising my 2 beautiful daughters and don’t mind getting in a round or two of golf from time to time. We spend our holiday time near the mountains and love being outdoors. I am very proud to have the designation P.Ag and have enjoyed my first term serving on AIA Council very thoroughly and look forward to serving for another 3 years.
