Philadelphia Eggs
Thursday, Sept. 13
Report supplied by USDA
MARKET COMMENT: Prices
edged higher on all sizes. Trade
sentiment is generally steady.
Cartoned egg movement was fair
to good. Supplies of extra large are
barely adequate to adequate.
Large are adequate, and offerings
were in good balance with the
buying interest for both class I’s
and graded loose packs. Mediums
are ample and most producer
packers have excess stocks and
are having difficulty in moving
them.

volume buyers, consumer grades

A Extra Large .67-.72; A Large
66-.71; A Medium .50-.54.
