CEP representatives taking part in upcoming Ag Day at the Capitol; Event set for March 22

The “most popular event under the Golden Dome” is set for March 22, as Gov. John Hickenlooper, state officials, the media and others will take part in a well-deserved “thank you” to Colorado’s farmers, ranchers and agribusinesses during Agriculture Day at the Capitol.

Each year, the event comes together with the help of Colorado Egg Producers (CEP) personnel. CEP Industry Relations Manager David Collie — pictured above on the right, and who also owns and operates Collie Consulting LLC — takes the lead among the organizations that make up the Colorado Ag Council, to organize the event, while other CEP reps are also on hand each year to assist.
With nearly 1,000 people in attendance, the event is highlighted by a cook-off competition, featuring the teaming up of local chefs, lawmakers and ag representatives, creating dishes with Colorado-grown foods. At last year’s event, the CEP team took second place overall in the 14-team cook-off competition.
Colorado’s Agriculture Day at the Capitol, which takes place as part of National Ag Week, showcases all that Colorado’s industry does for our state, including its efforts in feeding Colorado’s 5 million-plus people, its stewardship of our resources, and its $40 billion economic impact — a top three contributor to the state’s economy.

Please join Colorado Agriculture Council in celebrating local agriculture teamed up with the Colorado Chefs Association.

About Colorado Egg Producers 
The Colorado Egg Producers (CEP) Association is a membership organization representing egg farms throughout Colorado.
CEP is committed to doing what’s right for the community, as is illustrated by its regular donations of thousands of eggs to food banks throughout the state, and its partnership with the Good Egg Project — an initiative from America’s egg farmers that aims to educate people about where eggs come from, and to encourage Americans to help conquer hunger in the U.S.
Egg farmers throughout Colorado pride themselves on providing a high-quality, protein-dense food like eggs to citizens in this great state. They are also proud to offer consumers the choice between cage and cage-free, organic, nutrient-enhanced, brown and white eggs. And you can find these locally produced, fresh, wholesome and safe eggs in your favorite Colorado supermarkets.
