Temporary rule regarding caged hens
After the comment period closed for the proposed rule on egg-laying hens (603-018-0001 to 0013) it became apparent that the department needed to spend additional time beyond the January 1, 2012, effective date of the new law to clarify the rules with regard to equivalent practices to the United Egg Producers standards. The department will further clarify the rule and address comments submitted by the public. If you have questions please contact
