Dave’s Weekly Market Update — June 16th, 2022

Good afternoon to all, Eggs: The egg market is rising aggressively this week as more A1 bird flu unfolded last week in Colorado. There have been about 32 million birds that have  tested positive and killed. Demand is rising which is typical around the 4th of July and inventories are becoming tight on the larger egg sizes.

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.

Happy Thursday to all! There will not be an update next week, as I will be away. Eggs: The egg market is on fire as the A1 flu is affecting flocks and tightening up the supply. I expect more double digit increase as this situation unfolds. So far 3 farms have been affected and all east of the Mississippi. Over 6 million birds have been destroyed so far.

Dave’s Weekly Market Update — March 3, 2022

Good afternoon, Eggs: Much to my surprise, eggs dropped a little this week. I still expect it to turn around but time shall tell. I have not heard any more reports of the A1 bird flu popping up.  Butter: Butter rose this week with 19 loads changing hands at the CME. I feel  that some […]

Dave’s Weekly Market Update — February 24, 2022

Good afternoon, Eggs: Eggs dropped again this week. With the outbreak of A1 influenza in a flock in Delaware, I expect this to turn around and potentially fast and furiously.  Butter: The market went slightly lower this week, but this is the week of Cabot’s price increase of .04 on butter. Those items will go up but not […]
