The Rise and Fall of United Grain Growers

Cooperatives, Market Regulation, and Free Enterprise

Auteur/ Illustrateur / Sous la direction de : Paul D. Earl

For much of the 20th century, United Grain Growers was one of the major forces in Canadian agriculture. Founded in 1906, for much of its history UGG worked to give western farmers a “third way” between the competing poles of cooperatives like the Saskatchewan Wheat Pool and the private sector. At its peak, more than 800 UGG elevators dotted the Canadian prairies and the company had become a part of western Canada’s cultural psyche. The UGG’s history illuminates many of the intense debates over policy and philosophy that dominated the grain industry.
