Southern Alberta Sheep Breeders Association fonds


Physical Description:

In 1914 the Southern Alberta Wool Growers' Association was organized, with its head office in Lethbridge, Alberta. Its purpose was to cooperatively market the wool of its members. The association was instrumental in the formation, in 1918, of the nation-wide selling agency, Canadian Cooperative Wool Growers. In 1923 the association became incorporated under its present name, Southern Alberta Sheep Breeders, with the stated objectives of improving the sheep industry in southern Alberta. W.S. Benson served as secretary from 1938 to 1976 and as western manager of CCWG from 1929 to 1976. The Association is one of about a dozen producer groups affiliated with the Alberta Sheep & Wool Commission. The latter changed its name in 2009 to the Alberta Lamb Producers.
