He spends his spare time fly fishing, chasing pheasants with his dog in the fall, coaching high school girls’ volleyball, and playing with his cows on his farm west of Bluffton. Dr. Burrage has been involved with the Alberta Veterinary Medical Association throughout his career, serving on the Food Animal Committee, Complain Review Committee, and most recently with the Council and is the past president of the association.
