Alberta Beef Producers

Alberta is cattle country. The open range, the Rocky Mountains, acres of Parkland, and the fertile farmland of the rolling plains. These pristine natural resources are images of the west known around the world.

The more than 18,000 beef cattle producers who are stewards of the industry in this province have one organization that represents their collective interests – Alberta Beef Producers (ABP).

This industry is both progressive and historic, highly technical, yet grounded in the practical. From family ranches and farms passed down through generations, to new state-of-the-art feeding and breeding operations, Alberta’s producers are a proud reflection of their industry. 

Run by producers for producers, ABP is dedicated to maintaining a truly sustainable, competitive industry for the benefit of all Albertans.

Debra Murphy

Debra is the Editorial Content Specialist for Alberta Beef Producers, and spends most of her time writing and sharing content on ABP Daily and the ABP social platforms. She has an extensive background in both agriculture and media, and a strong affinity for cows, photography, and a well-timed joke. 

The Bovine is produced by Alberta Beef Producers. If you like the show, consider giving it a rating on your favourite podcast app! And, if you have an idea for a future show, don’t hesitate to get in touch through social media or by email.
