Utah eggs will be cage-free by 2025

29 March, 2021

On March 17, 2021, Utah’s legislature and Governor Spencer Cox of Utah passed a bill which will enforce changes to the Agricultural Code regarding egg-laying hens, effective January 1, 2025. 
The U.S. egg market is moving in the cage-free direction. More consumers have been demanding cage-free eggs, and national grocery stores and restaurant chains, from Kroger and Target to McDonald’s and Starbucks, have said they would stop selling eggs from caged hens by 2025.
Utah is not alone in its decision to enforce cage-free standards for medium to large chicken operations; Colorado, California, Florida, Massachusetts, Michigan, Ohio, Oregon, Rhode Island, and Washington have all established cage-free mandates as well.
