For over three decades, Chris Mills provided the Alberta and Canadian beef industry with invaluable insight and skill in market and policy analysis. Internationally, his contributions to defeating many international trade challenges to the Canadian beef industry deserve extraordinary recognition. Domestically, his achievements range from helping shape the policy changes to the Crownest Pass Freight Rate that resulted in the expansion of the livestock industry in Western Canada, to transforming the Canadian Cattleman’s Association into a federation of provincial associations, and to designing the Canfax Cattle Market Information Service. Throughout his extraordinary career, Chris has always shown the ability to envision the opportunities and challenges the industry might face and to develop strategies to successfully address them. He has been the industry’s mentor, market guru, conscience, and environmentalist. His logical approach to problem solving and his example of applying thoroughly researched information, hard work and common sense to issues continues to be an inspiration to industry leaders to this day. He is a most worthy addition to the Alberta Agriculture Hall of Fame.
