Careless Handling 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 cases. 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." ? Army Develops New Cotton Water Bag Washington, D. C. ?
