Dave’s Weekly Market Update — August 25th, 2022

Good Afternoon and Happy Thursday! Eggs: The egg market is gradually rising this week as demand returns as more school systems reopen. It is nice to see it be gradual instead of the usual over reaction that the market normally does. I expect more next week and hope it stays moderate. Here is the recap from Urner Barry.

Dave’s Weekly Market Update — August 18th, 2022

Happy Thursday to all. Eggs: The eggs hit bottom this week as demand is picking up removing the excess supplies from the marketplace.

Dave’s Weekly Market Update — July 21st, 2022

Good afternoon to all, Eggs: Once again, weekly Urner Barry markets continued increasing on all Lg, XL & Jumbo sizes for next week, but now Mediums have joined the move upward. Most birds lost to HPAI are still out, but heat continues taking its toll on all by reducing egg sizes. Retail demand is good, Food Service is strong and further processors are actively buying shell eggs while exports are not a significant factor in the current market. We keep expecting the Large plus market to level out soon, but not quite yet.

Dave’s Weekly Market Update — May 26th, 2022

Good afternoon to all! Eggs: The egg market is trying to stay where it is at the moment. The A1 bird flu is abating as the migration season is winding down. There is a shortage of cage free eggs which is making it difficult for distributors in Mass who are mandated to sell only cage free eggs. My best guess is that eggs will probably stay in this range for the near future but time will tell!
