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 Producers mascot, Eggbert and the Easter Bunny entertained kids at Food Bank of the Rockies today, were CEP donated more than 250,000 eggs just in time for Easter.
Colorado egg farmers helped the Easter Bunny out again this year. The seven local farms that make up the Colorado Egg Producers (CEP) Association have donated more than a quarter million eggs to food banks throughout Colorado to ensure those in need will have eggs in time for Easter. CEP is proud to contribute to the efforts of Feeding Colorado and the Good Egg Project, an initiative to end childhood hunger through the American Egg Board.
