Sheep Canada is owned and edited by Dr. Cathy Gallivan. Cathy has made a lifelong study of sheep and the industry since 1975. She has worked in Nova Scotia and Alberta as a shepherd and government sheep specialist, and has developed and taught several full-time and weekend courses in sheep production. Cathy is a graduate of the Nova Scotia Agricultural College and MacDonald College of McGill University (BSc 1978), and also of Oregon State University (MSc 1985) and the University of Guelph (PhD 1996).

Cathy is fortunate to have some great people working with her on the magazine: Rob Fensom (British Columbia); Dorothy Marshall, Peggy Johnson and Kathy Raines (Alberta); Stuart Chutter (Saskatchewan); Alice Guthrie (Ontario); Alyson Champ (Quebec); Jonathan Wort (Nova Scotia); and many other occasional contributors.

Sheep Canada magazine (and Cathy) are currently located in the old general store built by her grandfather in 1914, on the family farm where she grew up in Deerville, New Brunswick.
