GrainsWest receives funding from Alberta Barley and the Alberta Wheat Commission to publish a farming quarterly dedicated to the interests of this province’s grain farmers. GrainsWest connects farmers, food and ideas.
GrainsWest is owned, operated and published by the GrainsWest Publications Society. GrainsWest is published four times per year by the GrainsWest Publications Society, an autonomous, incorporated body.
Tom Steve is the general manager of the Alberta Wheat Commission and interim general manager of Alberta Barley and serves as the publisher of GrainsWest. The magazine’s managing editor is Trevor Bacque, who is responsible for its day-to-day operations. The latest addition to the GrainsWest team is Ian Doig, our Associate Editor, who is responsible for editorial content and story assignments in conjunction with the Managing Editor.
GrainsWest wouldn’t be what it is without the design and advertising expertise from our sales and design lead, Tommy Wilson.
GrainsWest is a magazine for farmers. Its six-person Editorial Advisory Board (EAB) is comprised of farmers that shape the publication’s content and ideas. These six farmers contribute valuable information to staff that work with their ideas to help produce strong features and research pieces.
The EAB representatives are:
- Bryan Adam, Stony Plain
- Cole Siegle, Clyde
- Jason Lenz: Bentley
- Jeff Nielsen: Olds
- Greg Porozni, Mundare
- John Wozniak, St. Paul
In addition, the EAB also features communications staff from both Alberta Barley and the Alberta Wheat Commission.
