Egg Web Site Launched

Site provides information to consumers about production and welfare.

The United Egg Producers is preparing to launch USA Egg Farmers, a consumer online access to information about egg production and the UEP Certified animal welfare program, which covers ethics- and science-based standards to deliver good hen welfare.

The Web site, which will be available next month, will include live broadcasts of UEP animal welfare conferences. On Tuesday at the annual meeting of the United Egg Producers in Atlanta, Mitch Head of the advocacy firm GolinHarris told the UEP animal welfare committee farm tours and interviews with producers would also be available online.

Head says the site will also feature "chicken care cams" that consumers may visit to see chickens in hen houses in real time to watch how they behave and perform in cage housing.
