As of January of 2022, Egg Grading Services are now provided and administered through the USDA Agricultural Marketing Services, Livestock and Poultry Program.
Any producers wanting to label their eggs with a standard, grade or weight class are required to contact the USDA and subscribe to the standards set forth. Click here to learn more.
Small Egg Producers (less than 3,000 laying hens) wanting to license with the state of Utah in order to sell their backyard eggs to restaurants and other institutions may voluntarily register with the division of regulatory services.
Each day, somewhere in Utah, eggs are being packaged and shipped to a foreign customer. Approximately 2 million dozen eggs are produced each week in Utah.
