The Fraser Institute/Media Advisory: How Can Alberta Government Reconcile Needs of Ranchers, Farmers and Others for Use of Public Land? New Study Coming Tuesday, November 3

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Nov. 2, 2015) - On Tuesday, November 3, the Fraser Institute will release a new book comparing land management policies in Alberta to land policies throughout North America and beyond.

Ranching Realities in the 21st Century highlights land ownership structures in the province of Alberta where over nine million acres of land is owned by the government and leased to farmers and ranchers. Through a collection of essays, the book looks to other jurisdictions to identify alternative structures that could facilitate higher earnings per acre of land, more livestock, or better protection of ecologically sensitive lands.

A news release with additional information will be issued via Marketwired at 5:30 a.m. (MTN) on November 3.
