Helmut Entrup, the first Farmers' Advocate of Alberta, earned the reputation as a fair-minded spokesman for Alberta farmers. During the 15 years he held this position he helped thousands of farmers, gaining the respect of not only the farming community, but government and industry as well. His work, especially in the field of surface rights, has had a lasting impact on agriculture and its relationship with the resource industry. Mr. Entrup's leadership resulted in higher revenue from well sites, pipelines and power lines on agricultural land, better contracts and increased awareness of farmers' rights. His untiring efforts also resulted in the rural gas program under which over 79,000 rural families are now served with natural gas.
