Free Range Eggs in the News

There is a lot of discussion in Australia about the stocking rate for chooks for free range egg production.

The Australian last weekend ran an article on a producer in the Hunter Valley of NSW, and today an article appeared on the Queensland Country Life e-mail news [ http://theland.farmonline.com.au/news/nationalrural/opinion/comment/free-range-eggs-need-to-be-affordable/2538852.aspx?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=newsletter ]

The question is should it be 300, 500, 1500 or 20000 per hectare?

Both articles offer a point of view........but the bottom line is cost.......how much can you afford to pay for your eggs?
