Cam started farming after graduating from Kelsey Institute in 1975 with a degree in Renewable Resources.
His farm is located near Hanley, just south of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. The family operation, run with his brothers, consists of four thousand acres that are cropped with malt barley, canola, durum, spring and winter wheat, oats, flax and peas.
In 2008 Cam was elected as a director of the Canadian Wheat Board, and served on that board until its termination in 2011. During that time he also sat on the board of the Western Grains Research Foundation.
In 2013, he was elected to the newly formed Saskatchewan Barley Development Commission and served as Chair for its first two years. Cam and his wife Beverly have three grown children.
