Item 5.02   
Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

On October 15, 2010, Cal-Maine Foods, Inc., (the “Company”) announced that the Board of Directors appointed Adolphus B. Baker to President and Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”) of the Company on October 15, 2010. Mr. Baker, 53, has served as President and Chief Operating Officer of the Company since January 1997. He was serving as Vice President and Director of Marketing of the Company when elected President. Previously, he had served as Assistant to the President since 1987 and has been employed by the Company since 1986. He has been a director of the Company since 1991 and is past chairman of American Egg Board, United Egg Producers, and Egg Clearinghouse, Inc. Mr. Baker is currently a director of Mississippi Poultry Association, United Egg Producers, Eggland’s Best, Inc., and Trustmark Corporation, Jackson, Mississippi. The Company owns approximately 29.1 percent of the non-voting stock of Eggland’s Best, Inc. (“Eggland’s Best”), a specialty egg marketing firm, and during the fiscal year ended May 29, 2010, the Company paid approximately $17,400,000 to Eggland’s Best for merchandising services. Mr. Baker is also the son-in-law of Fred Adams, Jr., the Company’s former CEO and founder of the Company, who will continue to serve as the Company’s Chairman of the Board of Directors. The Company’s press release dated October 15, 2010 announcing this appointment is furnished as exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
Item 5.03       Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year

The Board of Directors of the Company amended Article V of the Company’s Bylaws, effective October 15, 2010, to add the position of Chairman of the Board of Directors as an officer of the corporation.
Previously the position of Chairman of the Board of Directors was not included in the list of officers of the corporation in Article V of the Bylaws, and this change was made to permit Mr. Adams to remain as an officer of the corporation following the appointment of Mr. Baker as CEO, which position was previously held by Mr. Adams.
As a result of the creation of a new office of the corporation, slight changes were made in other sections of the Bylaws to remove any conflict or inconsistency with the creation of the new office.
The full text of the Bylaws is filed as Exhibit 3.1 to this Current Report.
