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.

The fonds consists of the minutes, membership records, and cash book of Sexsmith F.U.A. Local No. 135.
Administrative History
Sexsmith U.F.A. Local No. 204 was established early in the history of the United Farmers of Alberta, in the community of Sexsmith in the Peace River region of Alberta. It built a community hall sometime before 1929. In 1949, after the establishment of the Farmers' Union of Alberta, it became the Sexsmith F.U.A. Local No. 135. By 1956 the membership had dwindled, and the ability of the Local to sustain the community hall was in doubt.
