UK egg producers face challenge in conventional cage ban

Many producers expected to be non-compliant when ban takes effect

As the deadline of January 1, 2012 approaches for UK egg producers to reinvest in new systems, Klaus Torborg, of Lohmann Animal Health, does not expect producers to be penalized in the first half of 2012.

Torborg, who addressed UK egg producers at a recent Lohmann dinner, believes the government will be concentrating on dealing with the financial crisis, giving producers additional time to become compliant with the ban on conventional cages.

The British Egg Industry Council suggests that 8.349 million of the EU’s 363 million commercial layers are likely to be non-compliant with the cage ban when it goes into effect next year.
