Administrative History
Stirdon Systems Ltd. was established in Olds, Alberta in 1971. It developed and produced computer-controlled systems for milling livestock feeds on the farm. Stirling Mcleod was one of the founders of the business and served as its General Manager until his retirement in 2005. In 1997 the firm was acquired by UFA Co-op and became one of its Divisions. A second office of the division was established at Lethbridge. In 2001 UFA Co-op acquired Betker Livestock of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and integrated it with Stirdon, under the name Stirdon Betker Division. By 2010 the Olds manufacturing plant was moved to Red Deer and the Saskatoon office was closed. The organization was part of the Construction Division, 2007-2010, and became known as the Stirdon Betker Team.
Custodial History
The sound-slide production was donated by Stirling Mcleod, 2005.

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).
