GrainsWest receives funding from Alberta Grains 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.
GrainsWest content is lead by Tommy Wilson, who also manages day-to-day operations of the magazine.
The magazine’s editor is Ian Doig, who is responsible for editorial content and story assignments in conjunction with the editorial advisory board and commission staff.
GrainsWest is a magazine for farmers. Its eight-person Editorial Advisory Board (EAB) is comprised of farmers that shape the publication’s content and ideas. These eight farmers contribute valuable information to staff that work with their ideas to help produce strong features and research pieces.
In addition, the EAB also features communications staff from Alberta Grains.
