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.

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!

Happy Thursday! Eggs: The market is still correcting and dropping significantly on shell eggs. As a note the processed eggs have not begun to decline yet. Cage free eggs continue to be in short supply and we are forced to allocate them.
