NATIONAL EGG MARKET - AT A
tfl-RISE LAYER MANAGERS
WE HAVE STIR AERATOR TO HELP WITH
BIG PERFORMANCE...SMALL PRICE
SIMPLE PROCEDURE: the aerator works directly into the bed of
material, forming its own windrow. Windrows can be formed from piles
of nearly any size. Alleyways are not required when using the Brown
aerator, so there is a great reduction in space requirements. The
aerator’s reverse rotation works the material from the bottom up, and to
the side, assuring complete mixing and agitation. LOW
MAINTENANCE: the aerator is a simple design, the principle as a
material mover has been proven with over 30 years experience in
practical application. The aerator is hydraulically driven and equipped
with patented wearplates or paddles, both of which are easily replaced.

unchanged. The market tone was mostly
steady. Demand was light to good, mostly
fair, and was best where featured. Supplies
were adequate to fully adequate, and jum

Breaking stock supplies were adequate
from regular sources, and demand for addi
tional eggs was light. Spent hen offerings
were at least adequate for full slaughter
