Peter Waldner

My name is Peter Waldner and I am Chair of the EFA Board of Directors. I am finishing my second term.

I have been an egg farmer my entire life. I grew up around Magrath, Alberta and I’ve been married to my wife for 31 years. We have a family of four, all of whom are married. We also have four grandchildren. My interest apart from farming is carpentry. I like to keep busy and I love to work with the younger generations to teach them about the industry.

I believe it is important to serve on the board as a Director because the industry needs to keep going for future generations. I don’t do it for my own farm, but for all farmers because agriculture isn’t going anywhere. I believe EFA is successful because we are doing the right things while staying proactive. EFA makes sure everyone is informed with new information so farmers have the ability to react accordingly.

Looking forward, it is nothing but positive. There is so much good that is coming ahead for the egg industry. It is important to continually improve and make things better while keeping a working relationship with our government.
