  • Armenian Community Centre 15 International Village Drive Cambridge ON
Guest speaker Peter Hunton is one of our PROBUS club members and a Past President.

The title of his presentation is "The Egg and I".

Peter worked in the poultry industry his entire career. He has a Ph.D. in animal genetics and worked initially in the breeding industry, for Shaver in Cambridge and for one of its competitors in Scotland.

He later became Poultry Specialist for what is now Egg Farmers of Ontario. In this role he worked with farmers and was also involved with research and development.

When, in the 1980’s, eggs became vilified due to their cholesterol content, he was part of the effort to reinstate them as a valuable part of an everyday diet.

He has eaten 2 eggs daily for as long as he can remember!
