CCE Flock Talks Presents:
Producing, Processing, and Packing Eggs for Sale
Wednesday, January 26th, 7pm - 8pm
Keeping chickens, ducks, quail, and other poultry for egg production is a common practice on many small farms. As we move into longer days, egg production will be ramping up, providing ample opportunities to sell eggs.
Join Lynn Bliven, Ag & Natural Resources Issue Leader with CCE-Allegany and Amy Barkley, Livestock and Beginning Farm Specialist with the SWNY Dairy, Livestock, and Field Crops Program, as they share information on food safety, product quality, and regulations surrounding the production of table eggs from flocks of under 3,000 hens.
Topics will include:
- Food Safety in the Coop
- Collection, Refrigeration, and Washing
- Sorting Eggs for Quality
- Candling Demonstration
- Regulations for Packing and Labeling
- Maintaining Food Safety Through Sale
This free class is sponsored by the Cornell Livestock Program Work Team. Interested?

Profitable Meat Marketing Workshops
May 25, 2022
This webinar covers the approach used for setting meat prices, both for bulk and by-the-cut sales, using the Cornell Meat Price Calculator (MPC). Attendees will learn what data to collect from their farm and how to use the new MPC. The MPC is a user-friendly online tool for farmers that allows them to set prices that ensure they reach farm financial goals. The webinar will be recorded and shared, so that farms using the MPC can play it back when they are ready to use the MPC.
