Aggie Days Calgary

By: Angie Lang, Marketing & Social Media Coordinator, EFA

Is there anything better than a room full of people who love agriculture and who are passionate about animals? We don’t think so and neither do the people at Aggie days.

EFA headed down to Calgary Aggie Days in the Agriculture building on the Stampede grounds and wow, did we have a good time! We have attended in years past, but this was the first year that we were able to showcase live hens at the event. Even better, we were able to show-off our brand new 30 foot booth!

We couldn’t have asked for a better turn out and we received so many compliments on our fancy new appearance and our fancy live hens! We even had Stampede staff come around to our booth telling us that having the hens there for everyone to see was the highlight of Aggie Days.

This was a great way to kick-off our event season at EFA, with thousands of students in attendance during the week. On the weekend families paraded the Agriculture building and the compliments just kept flowing!

The amount of questions we received was amazing and it was so cool to see kids and adults alike, feeding the hens right out of their hand… you don’t see that every day in the big city!

A special thanks goes to our Egg Ambassadors for showing up and putting a face to local egg farmers and the amazing ladies who helped out at the booth all week and weekend, making sure all information was answered and everyone left with a little more knowledge than they came with. Thank you!

Keep your eyes peeled, because next week (April 25 & 26) we head down to Aggie Days Lethbridge to surprise more students and educate them about eggs and the hens that lay them!
