Our colony has been egg farming since 1924, which covers many generations. I am a 3rd generation egg farmer, as both my father and grandfather managed our colony’s egg barn.
I proudly followed in the steps of my grandfather and father. It was a dream come true to become the egg manger, getting to raise the birds and care for them, collecting eggs and monitoring the flocks.
I have the opportunity to feed Albertans with a safe, top quality product. Consumers care about where their food comes and how it was raised, and I’m proud to provide local food that was raised in a way they can be happy with.
There’s always something to learn with every flock. Working with the birds – seeing them every day, hearing the sounds they make, understanding them and what they need – and then having them get to know me.
The colony has dairy, beef, hog, broiler chicken, turkey, geese and duck operations, and we grow wheat, barley, canola, peas and durum on 18,000 acres.
I’m proud to provide high quality food that is raised right here in Alberta. That’s a great responsibility that always drives me to do better, even when consumers are happy with the eggs we provide.
Supply management provides stability for consumers and farmers, ensuring there is a constant supply of safe, high quality eggs from hens that are raised in accordance with a strict animal care program, on farms that are using increasingly environmentally responsible farming practices. The stability enables farmers to look to the future and be committed to continuous improvement.
