Burnbrae gifts $500,000 to UG

Burnbrae Farms has expanded its long-standing support for poultry research at the University of Guelph by gifting $500,000 for Dr. Alexander Harlander to study egg-industry housing systems.

She will also examine hen behaviour and biology.

Burnbrae is the largest egg-producing and egg-grading company in Canada.

One of the family members who own Burnbrae, Helen Anne Hudson, is chair of the Ontario Poultry Industry Council which is heavily involved in poultry research promotion, planning and co-ordination.
