USEM obtains third export order
United States Egg Marketers (USEM) has approved a large export order for delivery to five countries.
United States Egg Marketers (USEM) has approved an export order of 300 containers (about 243,750) cases of eggs for delivery beginning mid-February through 9 March to Germany, Italy, the United Kingdom, Israel, and Japan.
This is the third export order since mid-October for a total of 690 containers (566,850 cases).
Because flock sizes remained the same from October-February, the export orders have had a major impact on shell egg prices during the period, and to a lesser degree, breaker stock prices, according to United Egg Producers officials.
