U.S. Top Egg Companies Report Released

Rockford, IL – March 9, 2020 – WATT Global Media recently released the February edition of Egg Industry magazine featuring the latest rankings for the top egg producers in the U.S. These companies lead the egg industry according to the size of their layer flocks.

Egg Industry’s exclusive survey of Top Companies identified 68 egg producers in the U.S. with flocks that totaled 342.28 million hens housed as of December 31, 2018, up from 337.88 in 2018. The survey shows layer flocks continue to increase despite an oversupply of eggs and mounting losses.

“The U.S. is adding table egg laying hens faster than the growth of the human population,” says Terrence O’Keefe, Director of Content. “According to Census Bureau estimates. the population had increased at a rate of 0.65% annually compared to a 3% rate for flocks. The cage-free layer expansion is creating an oversupply situation for eggs of all types and will lead to volatile egg prices.”

To compile this report, Egg Industry conducts the survey annually with results from a combination of company-submitted information and estimates from industry sources. The Top Company edition includes information not found elsewhere with additional details available online.
