Greg Satrum, vice president of Willamette Egg Farms, says hens take advantage of perches and other enrichments that are part of the approximately 50-square feet enriched colony cages. Satrum was a key player in developing and passing legislation in Oregon and Washington that establishes minimum space requirements for egg-laying hens.
Greg Satrum, vice president of Willamette Egg Farms, is one of four individuals and three organizations being honored March 19 as part of the Oregon Department of Agriculture's Ag Progress Awards Dinner.
The dinner will take place at the Pendleton Convention Center, 1601 Westgate, Pendleton, Ore. It begins with a social hour at 5:30 p.m., followed by the awards dinner at 6:30 p.m.
