Shane DeBock was elected as director-at-large in 2015 after one year as delegate in region five.
After attending high school in Sangudo, Shane went on to earn a business finance diploma from NAIT. He returned to his family’s farm in Barrhead in 2008, where his father has been farming since 1963 on land that was previously in the family.
In addition to barley, the DeBocks grow wheat, canola, and recently added peas to their farm. With cattle and a small feedlot, the farm is more than enough to keep Shane busy.
Shane was persuaded by industry members and his father to join the commission as a delegate after attending regional meetings and showing an interest in Alberta Barley.
