Sixth generation farmer and rancher Trent Loos discusses what has happened with the price of eggs in Colorado and around the world. The price of eggs in Colorado has increased 133% since last January. Egg prices have been steadily increasing due to animal rights groups’ push to improve chickens’ quality of life. These efforts are not in good faith and are part of a plan to cut off the food supply. Egg prices are spiking globally, not necessarily due to the avian flu itself, but because ~38 million laying hens have been euthanized in attempts to mitigate the spread of the disease. This is an irresponsible method of mitigation. Colorado will not enforce its new cage free egg statute until 2024 due to complications from the avian flu. Egg prices are expected to continue to soar.
