The six states suing to block the law produce 20 billion eggs a year, of which nearly 2 billion are sold in California. Koster contends Missouri farmers would have to spend about $120 million to remodel their cages to comply with California’s law or forgo sales to one of their most important markets.What will happen is that some smaller egg farmers will fold. Some egg farmers will just completely bypass the CA market. Prices for other states will go up marginally. Egg prices in CA will skyrocket.
