The Profile Magazine:

The Profile Magazine is the official publication of the International Agriculture and Agri-Food Committee and was developed to showcase the agriculture industry throughout Southern Alberta to the world. Each year, we proudly share the stories of our vibrant and diverse agricultural industry. The Profile is distributed throughout Canada to producers, association and industry representatives. It is shared worldwide with friends of the Calgary STampede and is distributed at major North American and international stock shows and agricultural associations, embassies, consulates, and trade offices. 

The 2019 Profile issue highlights women in agriculture - the trailblazers, past, present, and future. From the beginning, women have graced and nurtured the landscape of agriculture - from ranching to farming, leading the way with new ideas and approaches - ideas that have helped and continue to advance our industry and we are excited to share their stories with you.
