“Producers in Alberta are some of the best in the world, and the land in Alberta is very productive,” said Shane Paterson, the company’s corporate development officer.
“There’s a very bright future ahead for Alberta and Canadian agriculture in general.”
And that’s especially so for central Alberta, said Red Deer farmer Trevor Petersen.
“This is God’s country, after all,” he quipped.
