Agricultural Service Board

About the Board

The County Council and two farm members, together with the Agricultural Fieldmen, address the current and local issues affecting agricultural production, develop policies and implement programs for the benefit of farmers and the environment.

The Agricultural Service Board was established in Starland County in 1945, in accordance with the Agricultural Service Board Act of Alberta. The Board is funded through a Provincial Service Board Grant, fees from Sales and Service from Control Programs, Municipal Tax, and other grants.

These funds are budgeted by the Agricultural Service Board members and approved by Council. Board activities are administered by the agricultural fieldmen. ASB meetings are held once a month on the first Tuesday of each month.
