WATT Global Media recently released the February edition of Egg Industry magazine featuring the latest rankings for the top egg producers in the U.S. These companies lead the egg industry according to the size of their layer flocks.

Egg Industry’s exclusive survey of Top Companies identified 68 egg producers in the U.S. with flocks that totaled 342.28 million hens housed as of December 31, 2019, up slightly from 337.88 in 2018. Find the digital edition of Egg Industry’s Top Companies magazine at www.eggindustry-digital.com.

Survey results reveal interesting insights from some of the largest egg companies in the United States. “Even with passage of legislation calling for cage-free hen housing passing in six states, US egg producers still predict that more than half of US hens will be in cages in 2025,” writes Terrence O’Keefe, Director of Content, in a February 2020 Egg Industry article about the landscape of layers in the U.S.

Data is available for purchase on the leading U.S. egg producers over a five-year timespan in a downloadable, easy-to-use spreadsheet.
