Welcome to the Stockmen's Memorial Library!
The Stockmen’s Memorial Foundation was officially organized in 1980 by fifty founding members comprising of ranchers, farmers and individuals who wanted to commemorate the Canadian livestock industry.
The organization was incorporated as a non-profit association and was established as a foundation by an act of the Alberta legislature. It is also approved as a charitable organization by Revenue Canada.
Objectives of the Stockmen’s Memorial Foundation are:
- to identify, honour and remember the builders of the livestock industry and others who have made outstanding contributions to its progress
- to provide historical and business information relating to the livestock industry
- to familiarize the public with the lore of the cattle industry
- to encourage a general appreciation of the sociological and economic significance of the livestock industry.
