Dave’s Weekly Market Update — September 15th, 2022

Good day! Eggs: Eggs are through the roof due to the bird flu. I expect more drastic jumps. See below: The impact from the recent Ohio HPAI (Bird flu) outbreak is having a dramatic impact by driving the weekly Urner Barry market prices up again. Bids to buy eggs are once again far outnumbering offers to sell. Since last week's announcement on egg layers in Ohio, turkey flocks have tested positive in Minnesota & California, and last Sunday in Sanpete county UTAH.

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.
