UNITED EGG PRODUCERS TO CEASE WORKING WITH HSUS
National Association of Wheat Growers (NAWG) reports:

The United Egg Producers (UEP) released a statement this week stating that they no longer plan to work with the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) in an effort to enact national cage standards.

UEP president Chad Gregory stated," With the farm bill now concluded, UEP can confirm that it has ceased efforts to pass the Egg Bill. UEP is now focused on exploring a range of options with the objective of delivering much-needed business certainty to America's egg farmers."

Other livestock groups such as the National Cattlemen's Beef Association and the National Pork Producers Council were opposed to the egg bill due to concerns that it would set a national precedent and allow lawmakers to regulate all on-farm animal practices.
