I have been the egg manager here for about 9 years.
While our colony has been egg farming since being established in 20023, we have been egg farming for at least 3 or 4 generations.
I started out just helping in the barn and then as our production grew, I became the egg manager.
Being an egg farmer means we provide Albertans with fresh, nutritious food every day.
I take pride in caring for our laying hens, making sure they are healthy and happy.
We have dairy cows, hogs, and we also farm 10,000 acres of crop land.
It makes me feel good knowing that we produce a healthy food, and that Albertans and Canadians have access to high-quality and local food.
Laying hens in Alberta and across Canada are well cared for. Our birds are raised in a safe and healthy environment, have access to fresh feed and water, free of added hormones, steroids, or antibiotics. All Canadian egg farmers follow the national Animal Care Program and Start Clean – Stay Clean, the national food safety program.
