Agriculture is the backbone of our county, and as such, controlling weeds and animals that hinder the production of agricultural products is a priority for the Agriculture Services Department.
Working very closely with the Agriculture and Rural Development branch of the Government of Alberta, our Agricultural Services Department is constantly monitoring plants, animals, and parasites within the county borders to ensure early eradication or control of these hindrances.
