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? You can register here https://tinyurl.com/SellingEggs or by contacting Amy Barkley at (716) 640-0844 or email@example.com. A copy of the recording and notes will be sent to all registrants following the class.
