Missouri Eggs are Best
Missouri eggs usually quoted on the market are from two to four cents
per dozen higher than Mississippi eggs. One of the large buyers of
eggs at a central market recently made the statement that the reason
for this difference in the quality of eggs.

If the poultry men will grade their grade their eggs in tow lots, it
will help to improve their market. In the first lot, put only good
clean eggs of uniform size and in the second lot, out the dirty,
small and misshaped eggs or use these eggs as far as possible at
home. Also, see that the nesting material is kept clean and changes
at regular intervals. It is also advisable to gather eggs at least
twice daily and keep in the coolest place possible until marketed.
