Scope and Content
The series contains the report and photographs of the first experimental farm building project; pamphlets on farmstead planning and development and products offered; photos of livestock chutes and pens; notes on managers of the Farmstead Development Department; and a video disk promoting the services of UFA Construction.
Administrative History
The Farm Supply Division of UFA Co-op began marketing prefabricated farm buildings in 1957. From 1960 until about 1964 it operated a Precutting Plant in Calgary for manufacturing building components. In 1964 the Building Department was established under the management of George Duffy. By 1968 the Department expanded to include installation of mechanized materials handling systems and became the Farmstead Building and Automation Department. In 1969 it was renamed the Farmstead Development Department (FDD). In 1985 the Farmstead Development function was decentralized and reintegrated into the Farm Supply Division, with building services specialists stationed at most Farm Supply Stores. By 1996 the product line of farm buildings was given the brand name Dynasty Structures. In 2007 the Construction Division was established, to integrate the expertise of Farm Supply building services with the Stirdon Betker Division and the newly-acquired Bar-W Petroleum and Electric. Its unrealized objective was to develop a general construction business in Alberta. In 2009 the Construction Division amalgamated with the Real Estate and Environment departments to form the Construction and Maintenance Services Division. By 2010 its focus returned to farm structures and farm mechanization and it was rebranded as UFA Building Solutions.

Scope and Content
The series consists of correspondence and budgets relating to UFA Co-op's Community Investment program; and thank-you correspondence, printed programs of sponsored events with promotional adverstising, and photographs documenting its contributions. The materials were mostly created or collected by the Member Relations department.
Administrative History
Local cooperatives and petroleum agencies provided financial support to community activities as early as 1937, when the Maple Leaf petroleum agency in Cereal, Alberta provided uniforms with hand-made patches for the Cereal Maple Leafs, a women's baseball team. As UFA Co-op prospered in the late 1980s, it began to allocate increasing budgetary amounts to its charitable program, known as "Community Investment". The program was administered by the Member Relations department. Delegates were also allocated budgets to support charitable causes of their choosing. Among other things, UFA Co-op supported scholarships for agriculture students, 4-H and other programs for rural youth, livestock shows and competitions, farm safety day camps for children, rodeo and chuckwagon organizations and competitors, horse teams that participated in local parades, children's and youths' sports teams in small communities, and medical research.
