Michael Kapicki was a leader in the introduction of new farming practices and community development. He was one of the first producers in the Andrew area to venture into canola production and to produce Yorkshire hogs for export sale, later specializing in raising purebred Hereford polled cattle. In 1942 he established the Willingdon Agricultural Society. He was instrumental in establishing 4-H dairy, beef and field crops clubs. As chairman of the Lamont agricultural service board from 1974 to 1986, he initiated several soil conservation programs and a farm beautification program. His leadership abilities were utilized at the local, provincial and national levels.
