Portrait

Edward McAlpine Campbel

Ted Campbell, promoter of quality in Saskatchewanís poultry products, was born in Tessier in January, 1909. He took his primary and secondary schooling in Tessier and Zealandia and then, following a lengthy illness, earned a B.S.A. degree at the University of Saskatchewan in 1940.

Ted worked as a laboratory instructor and plant assistant for two terms at the university, then moved to federal government service as district supervisor of the Wheat Acreage Reduction Program. In 1943 he joined the Saskatchewan department of Agriculture as assistant poultry commissioner. Ten years later he became poultry commissioner and served a total of 30 years working with and for the poultry industry.

His constant theme in talking to producers was to build a production unit on a solid foundation. Farmers should get away from the notion that poultry was just another way to sell wheat.

He helped organize all three of Saskatchewanís poultry products marketing boards, setting up meetings, writing submissions and giving producers the support they needed to help themselves.

He served as secretary-treasurer of the Turkey, Poultry and Broiler Producer Organizations and secretary-treasurer of the Poultry Board.

Ted organized far-ranging field trips for turkey producers to show how turkeys were raised on a larger-scale commercial basis. He set up cooking demonstrations to promote sale of turkey meat beyond the usual Thanksgiving and Christmas festal seasons.

He obtained much favorable attention for the budding broiler industry by having made a portable grill model that was and still is being used to stage barbecued chicken dinners at special community events in the province. During his term as commissioner broiler production moved from backyard operations to larger volume production featuring fresh frozen packs.

Ted was a vigorous promoter of quality table eggs. His emphasis on proper feeding and housing of layers and his promotion of egg consumption earned him the ìGood Eggî award from the national Poultry Products Institute. He encouraged producers to gear production to supply medium-sized and smaller centres as well as the larger cities.

He was active in the Saskatchewan Institute of Agrologists, serving as chairman of the Regina branch in 1955-56 and, in 1956-57, as president of the provincial organization. He organized the preservation of Saskatchewan poultry history in the North Battleford Western Development Museum. He collaborated in the writing of a history of the provinceís poultry industry.
