“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” ― Margaret Mead
As our industry continues to evolve, we have the choice to change with it or be left behind. Societal pressures will aid in dictating the direction we may to go. We’re not alone in this journey. We need to understand our friends and equally understand our foes to own our future and set our own path. Let’s change our traditional way of thinking and make smart changes and choices to build our industry stronger everyday.
As always, Provincial Milk Quality Award winner will be announced, as well as the ASAA Alberta Milk Scholarship recipients. The evening will highlight outgoing directors, Recognition of Outgoing Directors Dairy Industry Achievement Award and followed by entertainment.

NEW THIS YEAR: Dealing with the Challenges Associated with Animal Rights Activism Workshop
With the increasing activity from those who promote animal rights ideology, it’s vital that we all take the safety of our animals, family and farm seriously. Across Canada and in our own province, we’re seeing more and more extreme actions, like coming on to farm, protesting, gathering undercover footage and crashing pubic on-farm events.
Join us from 9-11AM before the commencement of the AGM to see how you can better protect your farm by implementing simple measures, as well as knowing exactly what to do if someone uninvited were to try to exploit your farm. Additionally, we’ll be addressing how to manage online trolls that don’t support dairy farming. Come hear an expert in activist management share manageable takeaways and tips for any type of situation.
This is a closed session for farmers only. You can register for this workshop during your registration for the AGM and dairy conference at albertamilk.com under additional dairy farmer events section. You are also able to just attend this workshop if you do not want to join us for the AGM and conference.
