Minnesota’s chicken and egg farmers this week announced a new name for their member organization, along with a new logo and website.  The “Chicken and Egg Association of Minnesota” (or CEAM) officially replaces the Broiler and Egg Association of Minnesota (BEAM), a name originally created in 1994 when the organization morphed from the Minnesota Poultry Industries Association (MPIA).

Both the name and logo were debuted this week at www.mnchicken.org, CEAM’s very first website presence. The website includes sections with information on Minnesota’s chicken and egg farmers, nutrition and recipes, poultry facts and figures, and a special secure section for its members.

“We’re excited to go live with CEAM’s new website,” said Steve Olson, CEAM Executive Director, in a press release. “It’s the first time CEAM has had its own presence on the Internet and our goal is to make it an excellent resource on chickens and eggs–and the farmers who raise them–for consumers and our members.”
