PortraitCarol Teichrob

During a long and distinguished career, Carol Teichrob assumed many leadership roles on behalf of Saskatchewan producers.

Born at Carrot River, Carol received her primary education in various locations across northeastern Saskatchewan. She came to Saskatoon to finish her high school education attending Bedford Road Collegiate.

It was while she was attending the University of Saskatchewan that she met and married Donald Teichrob, who was a transit operator for the city. Both being farm-raised, they moved to a farm just southwest of Saskatoon in 1967. At that location in 1974, they established Moonvale Farms, a turkey growing operation. In 1979, Carol and Don become shareholders of Plains Poultry in Wynyard and Carol served as president of that company for five years.

In 1980, the Teichrob family purchased a table egg production unit that they named Amberlea Farm Ltd. Their son Jim still operates this farm. The additional land associated with this farm enabled an expansion of their cow-calf operation.

Carol served terms as both director and chair for the Saskatchewan Egg Producers. She was also a director on the Canadian Egg Marketing Agency. For the turkey industry, she was director and chair of the Saskatchewan Turkey Producers Marketing Board and a director of the Canadian Turkey Marketing Agency. She was also a director for the Canadian Federation of Agriculture.

Carol supported agricultural research by serving as a director of VIDO, Biostar and the Saskatchewan Research Council. She was also a member of the Advisory Council to the College of Agriculture.

Carol was the poultry representative on a Canadian trade mission to China in 1980, headed by the Agriculture Minister Eugene Whelan. In the late 80s, she was appointed to the Poultry Industry Task Force by another Agriculture Minister, Don Mazankowski.

In 1978, Carol was elected to the Council of the Rural Municipality of Corman Park and she served as a Councillor and Reeve until 1990. Making the move from municipal to provincial politics, Carol was elected to the Saskatchewan Legislature in 1991 and again in 1995. She served in a number of ministries including Minister of Education and Minister of Municipal Affairs, Culture and Housing. Carol retired from political life in 1999, but continues to be active in church and community.
