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.

DENVER – November 2013 – For many Americans Thanksgiving is a time to gather with friends and family around a delicious meal to celebrate all that the past year has provided. Whether you look forward to spending quality time with family, cheering on your favorite football team or enjoying a home-cooked meal, there are many reasons to celebrate Thanksgiving. This time of year, the Colorado Egg Producers (CEP) Association encourages everyone to take a moment to be thankful and think about ways to help others who are less fortunate.
According to Feeding America, around 6.2 million households across the United States received aid from food banks in 2012. Coloradans were hit especially hard this year due to the damage caused by this summer’s wildfires and floods. The Food Bank of the Rockies reports that one in seven Coloradans worry about where they will find food next and sadly, nearly half are children.
