Causes Egg Losses
Most of the egg losses caused by
careless handling can be avoided
with additional effort on the part
of producers and handlers, says C.
F Parrish, in charge of poultry ex
tension work at N. C. State College.
The proper handling of eggs be
gins with gathering from the nest.
Collecting at least three times dai
ly results in cleaner eggs and in bet
ter ones. Eggs allowed to accumulate
in the nest for two or three days suf
fer a loss in quality because of the
high temperatures. This loss in
quality is frequently as great as the
loss in two or three weeks when kept
in a cooler.
Proper cooling is of utmost im
portance, Parrish explained. Eggs
gathered in wire baskets permit the
circulation of air and should be left
in the cooling room overnight be
fore they are pasked in cartons or
Eggs should be packed with the
small end down for proper shipping,
the exterwton service .poultryman
contlnnad, end stored In Jtae aaoler
until they are ready for market This
practire helps to maintain the natur
al quality of the eggs.
Also, Parris said, the use of clean
containers, eaaas and packing mater
ials adds greatly to the marketing
appearance of the eggs and helps
prevent the growth of mold.
"Careful handling on the farm and
in transit means more eggs for all
wartime needs," the specialist went
on. "Millions of dozens are being
bought each week by the Govern
ment in the form of dried eggs for
shipment to our allies overseas. Mil
lions more are being used by our
armed forces and in domestic con
sumption, both in the form -of shell
and dried eggs."
