Ed Schultz’s passion for the pork production industry in Alberta saw him dedicate a life-time career to improving a vital part of our agricultural economy. He was the general manager of the Alberta Pork Producer’s Marketing Board, (later Alberta Pork) for 33 years, from 1974 to 2007. During that time, he was instrumental in starting hog export contracts in Alberta, establishing the Pork Quality Assurance Program for Alberta pork and developing a large export market for Canadian hogs and pork products. He oversaw and directed the Alberta hog industry’s growth from a yearly production of about two million market hogs to the present level of three-and-a-half million. Ed showed he has earned a place in the business life of this province when he was named to the POWER LIST as one of Alberta’s 50 most influential people by Alberta Venture magazine in August 2006. His leadership has been invaluable to the pork industry, provincially, nationally and internationally, and has earned him the respect and gratitude of politicians, bureaucrats, industry people and producers alike.
