Encana is proud to help support agricultural life for local youth through 4-H and livestock auctions at community fairs.
Many of Encana’s operating areas in the United States and Canada are in rural communities where farming and ranching are the way of life.
In 2014, Encana helped support fairs as venues for showing and selling livestock projects in San Juan County, New Mexico, Fremont County, Wyoming, and Colorado’s Rio Blanco, Garfield, Weld, and Southeastern Weld counties.
At these fairs, we purchased more than $50,000 worth of livestock including rabbits, lambs, goats, hogs and steers from the 4-H and Future Farmers of America members who raised the animals. Subsequently the dressed animals were donated to local food banks and shelters such as the Latimer House in Colorado and Childhaven in New Mexico.
Encana’s Canadian operations have had a long standing relationship with 4-H Alberta. For a number of years Encana has participated in the 4-H sales with local clubs and has sponsored 4-H Alberta for its Ambassadors and Leadership conferences.
By participating in these activities, youth develop life skills such as responsibility, competition and financial management while making lifelong commitments to family and friends.
At Encana, we value our relationship with the agricultural community and are grateful for their contributions.
