Associate Professor Lee Schulz was interviewed by Marketplace for the article "Will egg prices go up amid more bird flu outbreaks?" The article focuses on recent outbreaks of highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) and how it could affect the egg market. Schulz said that "Typically, 86-87.5% of the eggs produced within a month are consumed, and 12.5-14% of the eggs are hatched to add birds to the flock. For a short period of time, the industry could maintain supplies to consumers by retaining fewer eggs."
