Responsible to plan, develop and operate regions of the community pasture program. The program’s objective was to provide affordable summer grazing for cattle and sheep, and winter grazing for horses. This optimum use, multi-use, concept provided the general public, and specifically Albertans access on vast areas of Alberta’s public land for recreation, and industrial use, in a non conflicting manner. The prime use was grazing. I was in charge of the Blackfoot Project - from the later planning stage, to the completion of development. Blackfoot received worldwide recognition for the innovative concepts that was a workable arrangement that satisfied the requirements of the majority of users on one land base.
