Throughout his 35-year public service career, Bill Mead was dedicated to the interests of Alberta livestock producers. He made his most significant contributions to livestock production while working as livestock commissioner in Edmonton and as the first director of the animal industry division. During this time he helped establish the Record of Performance program for beef cattle on a national scale, was instrumental in the founding of the University of Alberta Research Ranch at Kinsella, supported modernization of the provincial poultry plant at Oliver, and made improvements to branch recording and inspection systems recognized as the most practical and effective in North America. His work as a professional agrologist earned him the distinguished agrologist award in 1978.
