April 19, 2022

Chad HartChad Hart, professor, was interviewed for an April 19 KCRR story, "Why are Iowans Paying More at the Grocery Store?"

"To feel that in terms of not only lost egg production but also, especially in egg prices. We've seen egg prices at the producer level basically double over the past couple of weeks. Those higher producer prices are starting to translate into higher egg prices that we see at the grocery store because when you think about the egg industry, it doesn't take that long to go from the chicken laying the egg till you're buying that egg in the grocery store."
