A Sylvan Lake area farmer is one of three acclaimed as directors of Alberta Barley following the close of nominations Oct. 31.

Mike Ammeter (Sylvan Lake), representing Region Three as a Director-at-Large, will return for a second term. Also acclaimed were Region Four Director Bernie Klammer (Vegreville) and Jason Lenz of Bentley who will replace outgoing vice-chairman Trevor Peterson (Penhold) as Director in Region Three.

“It is always exciting when you have a mix of experienced board members and new people stepping up,” said Alberta Barley Chairman Matt Sawyer in a news release. “I look forward to working with Bernie, Mike and Jason and am confident they will do a great job representing barley farmers.”

As a second-term director, Ammeter pledged to work on crucial priority areas to grow the industry.

“We are working for producers to have a healthy barley industry,” he said. “I am always looking to do what’s best for farmers.”

After spending six years as a delegate, Lenz said he is thrilled to be an active voice for farmers.

“I will work hard to carry on this invaluable work in support of the great barley producers we have here in Region Three,” he added.

The directors’ terms officially begin on Dec. 5 at the annual general meeting.
