My father started egg farming in 1989 and I remember helping him in the barn, much like my sons help me in the barn now. I recently took over the layer operation from my father, but he definitely still helps out, so we’ve actually got three generations involved in the barn.
I grew up helping my father in the barn, so you could say that egg farming is in my blood.
It’s amazing to be able to produce one of the best foods available. Eggs are nutritious and delicious.
I enjoy the daily challenges. Being responsible for both caring for a flock of birds and feeding people can be incredibly challenging, but also very rewarding.
The colony has dairy and hog operations, and we grow wheat, barley, canola and peas.
It makes me feel great that we can provide Albertans with fresh, nutritious eggs!
Farmers work really hard to produce the highest quality product possible, while ensuring that the birds we care for are healthy and happy.
