Ray Nickel

Ray Nickel is the representative for Chicken Farmers of Canada (CFC). Ray comes from a third-generation farm family, and a graduate from University of BC with a degree in Ag Science. A large part of his off-farm work life was in feed sales and management along with some time spent working for a local BC processor as producer liaison. Ray and his wife Linda have 3 Children who are all actively involved in their own career paths of which his hope is those paths will eventually end back on the farm in one form or another.  They are involved in primary production of chicken, commercial table eggs and turkeys. His farms are all located in the Fraser valley.  Ray has been passionately involved in the BC agribusiness from an early age starting with his first tour of duty as Turkey grower association director and then president.  He has served on numerous grower and producer associations with many years spent as the president of the B.C. Poultry Association.  Currently, Ray is a director on the BC Chicken Marketing Board and a CFC director.
