The Louisiana Egg Commission strives to educate consumers of all ages on the nutritional value of egg and egg products. The Commission also approves and issues licenses to entities engaged in egg production and wholesale, and upholds and regulates all rules of the Commission.

The Commission meets in the spring and fall to discuss past and upcoming promotions.
Members are updated on all issues concerning the regulation of eggs and egg products as well as financial issues concerning the Commission.

The Egg Commission derives its funding from an assessment fee on each case of eggs and egg products produced and processed in the state of Louisiana. Assessment fees are also collected on all out of state eggs and egg products that are distributed into Louisiana.
The Egg Commission promotes eggs in many ways; some of the on-going yearly function are:
  • Two large radio promotions during Christmas and Easter
  • Works closely with the American Egg Board on all state activities
  • Participates in various trade shows through out the state such as:
  • Other promotions are done when the opportunity arises and the Commission thinks the exposure will be of benefit

 

In addition to promotional activities the Commission partners with the Louisiana Poultry Federation to award the Louisiana Poultry Industries Educational Foundation Scholarship. This scholarship is awarded to qualified students who meet specific requirements and attend a Louisiana institution.
Scholarship information is available from:
                                Dr. Theresia Lavergne

  • Other monetary awards are given through LSU Ag Center on a yearly basis.

Yard Eggs For Sale!

Here are a few things to remember:

  • Keep refigerated 45 degrees or below
  • Must be in an unmarked carton (Not a reused major store brand)
  • Date when the eggs were gathered and placed in the carton

Eggs are a good source of all-natural, high-quality protein, so they can help keep you satisfied longer, making it easier to resist tempting snacks throughout the day.
