Seeking egg board nominees Week of 6/24/19

Staff Writer

The Ohio Poultry Association is accepting suggestions for nominations to serve on the 2020-2021 American Egg Board, which is egg farmers’ link to consumers.
Members serve two-year terms on the national board.
“Board members serve an important role in overseeing and carrying out AEB’s mission to increase demand for egg and egg products on behalf of U.S. egg farmers,” said Jim Chakeres, OPA executive vice president.
To be eligible for nomination, persons must be producers or representatives of producers and they must own 75,000 or more laying hens. Producers who own less than 75,000 hens are eligible provided they have not applied for exemption and are paying assessments to AEB.
The board is appointed by the secretary of agriculture and consists of 18 members and 18 alternates from all regions of the country who are egg farmers nominated by certified state and regional organizations representing egg farmers. Members and alternates may not serve more than three consecutive two-year terms in their current position.
Nominations should be submitted by July 1 to the OPA at
Ohio is the second largest egg farming state in the nation, producing more than 9 billion eggs each year.
