Stéphane Beaudoin is a graduate of McGill University in General Agriculture program and a member of l’Ordre des Agronomes du Québec. Over the last 25 years, Stéphane has evolved mainly in the fields of agronomy, animal production, animal health, continuous improvement, corporate affairs and animal welfare. Stephane has both a broad and in-depth knowledge into the livestock production value chain and its related regulatory and marketing systems. He has the ability to distill complex industry regulatory issues and relationships into workable insights and intelligence. He defines himself as a facilitator, even a bridges builder between the various stakeholders with the following ultimate goals: the promotion of the ONE Health principle (health and well-being of animals, humans, ecosystems), food safety and consumers’ trust in their agri-food system.
His entrepreneurial journey began with his meeting with Dr. Temple Grandin in 2007. It was for him his epiphany where he understood how he could amalgamate his passions for animal welfare, science, agribusiness and education. In 2013, he founded his own animal welfare company, under the name of Gestbeau Inc.
In order to reach an atypical but growing clientele, he founded Magon Inc in 2020 to offer agronomic and veterinary tele-consultation service to small-scale livestock producers and urban/peri-urban owners of farm animals.
