Top 4 Under 40 Series: Conrad Vanessen

By Brett Ruffell   

Top 4 Under 40

Conrad Vanessen of Coaldale, Alta., is one of Egg Farmers of Alberta’s (EFA) recent new entrant farmers, a current director and past chair of EFA’s board of directors and an alumni of Egg Farmers of Canada’s (EFC) Young Farmers Program.

He’s had a rapid rise to become one of the Alberta egg industry’s most influential young leaders. As both a director and member of EFA’s Egg Ambassador team, the free-run egg producer is eager to speak to the public about modern egg farming.

In the final instalment of Canadian Poultry’s 2022 Top 4 Under 40 podcast series, editor Brett Ruffell talks to Vanessen about enhancing the new entrant program, being a future-proofing advocate and educating the public about poultry production.

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.
