Name of creator
The Alberta Aberdeen Angus Association was established in 1917, with 28 founding members. G.H. Hutton was the first president. The association was incorporated in 1963 with the stated objective of fostering and protecting the interests of the breed in Alberta. Almost half of registered Aberdeen Angus cattle in Canada are raised in Alberta, making it the stronghold of the breed. The association holds a "Super Star" sale annually, does performance testing of the breed, and is involved in a rapidly expanding export business. In the 1990s the name was changed to the Alberta Aberdeen Angus Breeders Club and later to the Alberta Angus Association.
