In many circles Wilfred Edgar was called 'Mr. Hereford'. In 1932 he obtained his first registered animal. By 1977 his operation included over 300 registered Herefords which he exported all over the world. A distinguished international show judge, Mr. Edgar was a founder of the first world Hereford conference in 1951. He was president of both the Alberta and Canadian Hereford associations and is entered in the Hall of Fame of both associations. A strong family man, Mr. Edgar assumed executive positions in numerous community clubs and served the Poplar Grove municipality for 10 years as a councillor and reeve.
