The year 2025 is the most common deadline for the more than 200 food companies and restaurants that committed to switching to cage-free eggs. This impacts how producers are managing healthy hens and profit margins. Despite the best education, the transition to cage-free production is a challenging process. The Focus Series report focuses on the best management practices for cage-free pullet rearing.
“Moving to cage-free from conventional egg farming requires a total change in mindset, which forces farmers to pay more attention to every detail in the process of raising pullets to ensure welfare and profitability are not sacrificed,” says Terrence O’Keefe, editor, Egg Industry Magazine. “This report addresses the most important issues in the process and helps producers achieve their business goals.”
