U.S. and state legislators visit Rose Acre Farms
(Parker Pioneer, 7/25)

It was VIP time July 21 at the Rose Acre Farms egg-laying facility being built south of Bouse. A delegation featuring U.S. Rep Paul Gosar (R, Ariz.) and State District 5 Rep. Regina Cobb toured the facility, which is currently under construction. […] When completed, it’s estimated the facility will house three million laying hens and will provide 80 to 100 jobs that would include comprehensive employee benefits. […] ‘It’s pretty amazing,’ Gosar said. He added that many egg producers are looking at Western Arizona so they can be close to the California market. ‘Arizona is very close to becoming the egg capital of the world,’ Gosar said. Gosar said he was particularly impressed with how everything will be utilized and re-utilized. […] The facility is perfectly situated as there are no migratory bird flyways nearby, Gosar said. This will lessen concerns over diseases like the avian flu.”
