The development and administration of farm policy in Alberta has thrived under Harvey Buckley's guidance. Known and trusted by both industry and producers, Mr. Buckley provided steady leadership to a majority of Alberta's commodity organizations for nearly 25 years. As chairperson of the Alberta Agricultural Products Marketing Council, Mr. Buckley established the new Marketing of Agricultural Products Act in 1987. With an unending desire to learn, Mr. Buckley had continually improved his own commercial cattle operation. At the Quarter Circle X Ranch at Cochrane, Mr. Buckley had promoted his conservation and stewardship philosophy by maintaining a careful balance between productivity, cost and long-term viability. Mr. Buckley had been involved in numerous agricultural and community-based organizations, from the Cochrane Chamber of Commerce to many livestock organizations. In working with the community, Mr. Buckley developed the prototype group that soon became the model from which the Provincial Rural Crime Watch program was formed. A recipient of many awards, Mr. Buckley received the Alberta Achievement Award of Excellence in Agriculture in 1986 and the Confederation of Canada 125th Anniversary Medal in 1992.
