Pivert Bros Farm. — 1960-1973. — 0.5 cm of textual records.
Around 1960, Roland Pivert moved from Edmonton to Grande Prairie to work for Cookshaw Electric. At this time he took over some of the responsibilities for the Pivert family farm. He was joined in 1964 by his younger brother Paul, who had just finished his program at the Fairview Agricultural College, and they farmed together as the Pivert Bros. Roland continued to work for Cookshaw Electric while Paul worked at the Beaverlodge Research Station. Paul also did some work as an artificial inseminator for the Grande Prairie Artificial Breeding Association.
