Daniel Gobeil has been elected Vice-President of Dairy Farmers of Canada in September 2023.

A trained agronomist, Daniel Gobeil is the owner of Ferme du Fjord, originally acquired by his grandfather. Although there is no shortage of work, the family structure of the farm, involving three generations, allows him to free up enough time to get involved in several committees and with various organizations.
