Top 4 Under 40 Series: David Arand

By Brett Ruffell   

Top 4 Under 40

David Arand, a turkey farmer from Atwood, Ontario, has been running his family’s farm since the young age of 22 after his father passed away in a tragic farm accident. He has since transitioned the farm from pigs to turkey production. Along the way he’s adopted many innovative management practices and technologies. He’s also a passionate educator and goes the extra mile for his community.

In the second instalment of Canadian Poultry’s 2022 Top 4 Under 40 podcast series, editor Brett Ruffell talks to Arand about overcoming tragedy, embracing innovation and his love for turkeys.

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.
