Richard (Dick) J. Page was known as the farmer of Alberta's pork marketing system. His foresight, diligence and dedication to developing a marketing system has paid dividends to both hog producers and pork consumers. He was also one of the driving forces behind the formation of Unifarm, serving as vice president and remained as an active member. His leadership had also been evident in his community especially his pivotal role in bringing electricity, telephone and rural gas services to the Didsbury area. This led to his long term association with both his local Rural Electrification Association and the provincial body. Mr. Page also sat on the Alberta Agricultural Products Marketing Council and was involved in the formation of a provincial weather modifications co-op.
