If it is approved, this Massachusetts measure would help to reduce the cost of cage-free eggs, allowing them to be offered as standard, rather than for a premium price.

I’m gonna play devil’s advocate, even though I agree with your main point about eliminating confinement practices. I’m just curious how cage-free eggs will drop in price if the cheaper alternative for farm production (cage eggs) is eliminated? What’s the mechanism whereby the price to the consumer will drop, as it seems at first glance like price to farmer will rise?

Also, I don’t know if you’ve seen photos of what some of these “cage free” facilities are like. It’s still pretty disgusting on a huge scale.
