For more than 60 years, Howard Haney has worked tirelessly promoting agriculture, community education, family and philanthropy. From his earliest years as a farmer, Howard recognized the power of the co-operative movement, and played an active part in its evolution, both in Alberta and Canada. As president of the United Farmers of Alberta, he earned the respect of members, board members, management and staff through his professional and ethical business practices. As director of Fletcher’s Fine Foods Ltd., he contributed directly to the successful transfer of shares from the Alberta Pork Producers’ Development Corporation to individual producers during a time of great turbulence in the pork processing industry. He also played a central role in developing the Co-operative Marketing Chair, which is a major research and education initiative at the University of Alberta. Howard’s commitment to bettering his community, and his country, was recognized in 2004 when he was inducted into the Order of Canada.
