Colorado Egg Producers play a part in Ag Day at the Capitol success

The “most popular event under the Golden Dome” was once again a success, as Gov. John Hickenlooper, state officials, the media and others took part in a well-deserved “thank you” to Colorado’s farmers, ranchers and agribusinesses during Agriculture Day at the Capitol on Wednesday.

And it will be done largely with the help of Colorado Egg Producers (CEP) personnel. 

CEP Industry Relations Manager David Collie, who also owns and operates Collie Consulting LLC, is taking the lead among the 48 organizations that make up the Colorado Ag Council and organize the event, while CEP Executive Director Bill Scebbi, CEP Outreach Events Coordinator and CEP board mmber Terry Tormohlen were also on hand to help out.

With an estimated 900 people in attendance, the event was highlighted by a cook-off competition that featured the teaming up of local chefs, lawmakers and ag representatives, creating dishes with Colorado-grown foods.

The CEP team took second place overall in the 14-team cook-off competition, under the guidance of chefs Klaus Krebs and Travis Barday of Isle Casino and Hotel.

Colorado Egg Farmers Celebrate World Egg Day

Friday, October 8, 2010

Colorado egg farmers and the Colorado Egg Producers (CEP) Association are proud to join in the celebration of World Egg Day on October 8, 2010. Eggs are celebrated in many cultures around the world as a symbol of the essence of life and as an important source of food and nutrition.

“World Egg Day is the perfect opportunity to highlight and celebrate the special place eggs hold in cultures spanning the globe,” said Jerry Wilkins of the Colorado Egg Producers Association, a membership organization representing seven family farms throughout Colorado. “In addition to specific customs, symbolism and beliefs about eggs, internationally eggs are considered a fundamental component of people’s diets. Weighing in at 75 calories, eggs pack a punch of nutrition. Each egg has 13 essential nutrients – including the highest quality protein, choline, folate, iron and zinc.
