Alexander Charnetski became legendary as an expert on swine and sheep through his development of educational programs, health regulations, policies and lectures given throughout the province. He was one of the early district agriculturists in the province and maintained this close contact with the farming when he worked with the Department of Agriculture in a number of other areas. His principle interest was the development of livestock improvement policies. Following World War II he assumed responsibility for swine and sheep extension and promotion for the province which he maintained for 21 years until his retirement in 1966. Upon retirement, Mr. Charnetski continued his agricultural activities and memberships. Among his many memberships were the Agriculture Institute of Canada, Alberta Institute of Agrologists and many Ukrainian church and community organizations.
