Top 4 Under 40

In the third episode of our 2023 Top 4 Under 40 podcast series, we talk to Cheryl Norleen of 4G Poultry based in Raymore, Sask.

Norleen is a first-generation organic egg producer. She played key roles both in being accepted into the new entrant program and in achieving organic certification.

Norleen is also committed to personal growth. She participated in both Egg Farmers of Canada’s young farmer program and its mentorship program for female egg producers.

She also completed a rigorous farm business management program called CTeam.

In the instalment of the 2023 Top 4 Under 40 podcast series, Canadian Poultry editor Brett Ruffell talks to Norleen about getting started in the egg business, going organic and professional development.

Canadian Poultry launched the Top 4 Under 40 program in 2021 to recognize young poultry leaders. Four finalists, including three farmers and one industry professional, are chosen based on their leadership, innovation and advocacy. We then recognize them in this Top 4 Under 40 podcast series.
