Bert Hargrave was a product of the short-grass cattle country north of the Cypress Hills. A fourth-generation rancher, he began a life-long challenge to improve agriculture on his own cattle ranch near Medicine Hat. There, he improved stock quality, developed water conservation techniques and designed specialized machinery for range management. To streamline cattle marketing and shipping to the east, he founded the Walsh Cattle Marketing Association and remained its president for 25 years. Among Mr. Hargrave's many industry affiliations, he was an exceptionally active member of the Canadian Cattlemen's Association throughout his career. Mr. Hargrave served three terms as a member of parliament and later sat on the boards of the University of Calgary and University of Alberta. He is also a member of the Agricultural Hall of Fame in Billings, Montana.
