Farmer’s Day this Friday, June 11, 2021 as United Farmer’s of Alberta Co-operative (“UFA”) recognizes farmers and ranchers whose work doesn’t stop, even for a pandemic.

Image of UFA logoThe 112-year-old Co-operative has a deep history celebrating Farmer’s Day, dating back to a 1945 convention resolution where UFA declared a fixed date to observe “Farmer’s Day” to recognize the importance of Alberta’s agriculture industry. Farmer’s Day is celebrated each year on the second Friday of June. For many years, Farmer’s Day was a provincial holiday, kids had the day off school and families could spend quality time together following the busy seeding and calving seasons.
