The fonds consists of the 1928 Certificate of Incorporation, Memorandum of Association, quarterly and annual financial statements, minutes of annual meetings (1926-1949) with lists of shareholders, share certificates issued to shareholders, agreements, and instructions to mailing room staff.
Administrative History
The official newspaper of the United Farmers of Alberta, The U.F.A., began publication in March 1922. W. Norman Smith was its editor. Initially publication was supervised by a committee of the United Farmers of Alberta, but in 1928 "The U.F.A." Limited was incorporated under the Companies Act of Alberta to allow the newspaper to operate with legal independence. The U.F.A. was renamed The United Farmer in 1934 and ceased publication in 1936. A subsequent publication of the United Farmers of Alberta Co-operative Association, 1962-1985, was also titled The United Farmer. The officers of the United Farmers of Alberta generally were concurrently officers of The U.F.A. Limited. The company apparently wound up its affairs in 1949.

Administrative History
United Grain Growers Ltd. was formed in 1917 from the amalgamation of the Grain Growers' Grain Company (founded 1906) and the Alberta Farmers' Co-operative Elevator Company (founded 1913). It was headquarted in Winnipeg and had operations across the Prairie region. It was a producers' co-op specializing in marketing grain, but at various times it was also involved in publishing; marketing livestock and specialty crops; and retail sales of farm supplies, coal, feeds, fertilizers, and agricultural chemicals. Its publishing subsidiary, Public Press Ltd., published the Grain Growers' Guide (established in 1908 by the Grain Growers' Grain Company, renamed Country Guide in 1928). In 1992 it became a publicly-traded corporation. In 2001 it acquired Agricore (a corporation formed in 1998 from the amalgamation of Alberta Wheat Pool and Manitoba Pool), and was renamed Agricore United. In 2007 it was acquired by Saskatchewan Wheat Pool. The new firm was named Viterra Inc.and expanded to become a multi-national agri-business.
