Administrative History
The Farmers' Union and Co-operative Development Association was formed in 1959 at the instigation of the Farmers' Union of Alberta, the United Farmers of Alberta Co-operative, and other co-op enterprises that served the agriculture industry of Alberta. Its objectives included development of rural leaders through education, promotion of the co-operative movement, and assistance to rural communities. For many years it was involved with educational programs for youth. Around 1967 it was renamed the Rural Education and Development Association (REDA). In 2005 REDA amalgamated with the Alberta Co-op Council, becoming the Alberta Community and Co-operative Association (ACCA).

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.
