WHAT ARE THE MEMBERS’ ADVANTAGES?
PGC’s members benefit from many advantages such as:
“Convinced of the importance to have an organization that takes care of the development and the structure of the pullet production at the national level in close collaboration with provincial egg boards, the Fédération des producteurs d’œufs du Québec is proud to support Pullet Growers of Canada (PGC). PGC’s actions enable pullet growers to assert their concerns, to build on several important issues and to have an effective communication channel between growers and their organization. As an essential link in the poultry industry, the pullet plays a front-line role in the production of quality eggs for consumers.”
“Egg Farmers of New Brunswick supports Pullet Growers of Canada because it fills a gap at the national level between the day-old chick and the 19-week layer. The egg industry benefits from having an organization that represents this integral part of our production chain and communicates directly with Egg Boards and Egg Farmers of Canada on issues of concern to pullet growers.”
HOW TO BECOME A MEMBER?
All provincial egg boards are welcome to be members of Pullet Growers of Canada. Membership is based on a financial contribution and the designation of a provincial representative on the Board of Directors.
