Nearly 500,000 chickens lost in fire near Roggen; Egg prices expected to hold steady

Wednesday, May 2, 2012

Colorado lost about one-eighth of its egg production in a Weld County fire Monday that claimed the lives of nearly 500,000 hens.

However, the extensive loss from the blaze at the Boulder Valley Poultry farm near Roggen is not expected to increase egg prices at grocery stores in the region, industry experts said Tuesday.

Jerry Wilkins, president of the Colorado Egg Producers Association, said that because egg demand is typically low this time of the year, and because many other local producers have agreed to step up in response to Boulder Valley’s losses, the effects of this week’s fire are expected to be minimal.“That’s about the only good news to come out of this,” Wilkins said. “It was a terrible event otherwise. “We’re very sorry for their loss.” To read more, click here.
