CARE OF EGGS ON THE FARM [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner Wodonga Express and Riverina Stock Journal — 28 February 1941
CARE OF EGGS ON THE FARM ', The 'method of storing eggs on the farm, awaiting despatch to market, often , leaves much to be desired.

Tho temperature of the rooni is another important matter, .especially in hot weatlior. when the ectcs should bo kent as cool as possible. ';Whero a cool I room is not available, the best courso is to pack the previous day's eggs early the next morning, and, after jacking, cover tho cases over until they are sent to market. On no account should eggs be allowed to stand exposed to the air during warm weather, as this leads to rapid evaporation ? and results iji eggs being rojectod as stale,
