ALUS Red Deer County

Red Deer County started an ALUS Program in 2013. ALUS complements existing programs that the County had been delivering with local producers since 2001—but with ALUS, farmers and ranchers can get paid to produce more ecosystem services on their land.




So far, 51 farmers and ranchers have enrolled over 2,400 acres in the ALUS Red Deer County program. They’re doing multiple projects including 51 alternative livestock watering systems and 182,000 feet of riparian management fencing, all producing ecosystem services upon which we all depend.

In 2016, Red Deer County welcomes two ALUS Farmer Liaisons to the team. Tom Towers is a rancher from just south of the City of Red Deer, and Stephen Smith has a mixed farm near Pine Lake. Both Tom and Stephen have done ALUS Projects on their farms. As ALUS Farmer Liaisons, they follow up with current ALUS participants and help bring new participants into the program.
