Friends of the Stockmen’s Memorial Foundation Award

The Stockmen’s Memorial Foundation was officially organized in 1980 by fifty founding members comprised of ranchers, farmers and individuals to commemorate the Canadian livestock industry. Created with a generous donation by Dr. Bob Church, a member of the pioneering Church family, the award recognizes their legacy, contributions, continuance and preservation of western traditions.
