Administrative history

A United Farmers of Alberta (UFA) Local was organized in Queenstown in 1910, the Milo-Queenstown United Farm Women of Alberta (UFWA) local was organized in 1917, and Milo UFA Local #713 was organized in late December 1925, or early January 1926. In 1932 the UFA separated into two distinct branches, one for the organization’s cooperative activities and one for all other functions. In 1949, this second branch joined the Alberta Farmers Union to form a new organization, the Farmers Union of Alberta (FUA), and the local chapter became Milo-Queenstown Local #1226; a women’s organization, Farm Women’s Union of Alberta (FWUA) was formed at the same time. In 1970 the FUA and FWUA joined the Alberta Federation of Agriculture to become Unifarm (and Women of Unifarm), and the area local became Unifarm Milo Queenstown Local #124-126. This local was dissolved in 1984 due to lack of interest.
