Video: Schoen Eggs Producer - the Thiessen family farmJason Thiessen is an egg farmer near Winkler, Manitoba. He cares for approximately 6,000 hens in an enriched housing system. Jason represents the third generation on their family farm that mainly produces grains, and his kids represent the fourth generation.
Jason’s family are always keen on adopting new technology for better farm management. Since their first flock, they have upgraded their environmental controller, added a feed mill as well as a misting system which has helped reduce mortality during the very hot days. Their egg facility has consistently attained a superior rating under the national on-farm food safety and animal care programs over the years.
