Dave Solverson and his brother Ken, and their families, operate Woodwind Ranch, southwest of Camrose along the Battle River. Dave manages a large cowherd and takes the calves right through to slaughter. Woodwind Ranch also breeds the majority of their heifers for replacement and sale to other producers. Dave has been very involved in cattle industry associations, Alberta Beef Producers, and served as President of the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association from 2014 to 2016. 
Rob Rolf grew up in Edmonton and Camrose. After graduating from the UofA with a BSc in Agriculture in 1974 he was hired to manage the purebred Hereford operation that was owned by Dr Red Elliott, 2 miles east of Camrose. Over the years Rob purchased cows. land and machinery and partnered in the operation. In 1992 Rob bought the home quarter, machinery, and proceeded to take control of the farm. The farm was a wonderful place to successfully raise 5 children. Farm fresh meat and produce from a large garden helped to feed everyone.  Forty years later, in 2015, the cattle were sold but he and his wife, Liz, remain on the farm.

The 2020 Speaker Series of twelve lunch presentations on Agriculture runs from November 25, 2019 to June 15, 2020. See the complete schedule here. For more information email
