S. E. Todd

As chief executive officer of the Canadian Meat Packers Council, S. E. Todd was devoted to the task of interpreting consumer demand to the producers of livestock. Because of his knowledge of the subject, he was able to make an outstanding contribution to the development of livestock policies, particularly those designed to promote the production of better meat-type animals. Included in such policies were: grading standards for live and dressed hogs; advanced registry for swine; national standards for beef and lamb carcasses and the development of market and carcass classes at the Royal.

During the First World War, Mr. Todd served on the Canadian Food Board and in the Second World War, on the Canadian Bacon Board. He was a director of the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair from 1922 until his death.
