(Animal Agriculture) Egg Industry Predicts Cages won't go away by 2025

(Animal Agriculture) Egg Industry Predicts Cages won't go away by 2025

The egg industry is under high pressure to go to cage free shell egg production by 2025. Producers don’t think this change will happen. Read about current hen housing and examine hen numbers. Read this article and complete the student guide to consider this topic in more detail. The article is 2 pages long with lots of charts and good graphics. The guide is a 3 page PDF and has students look at the graphs, as well as read the article for more information. Finally, students write an opinion reflection on the topic, which addresses several key questions the article raises. This would take about 25 minutes. Thanks for looking!
