Hendrix Genetics Introduces GeneVision for Shell Egg Evaluation


Hendrix Genetics in conjunction with electronic equipment manufacturers in Holland have developed the Eggxaminator to evaluate a range of heritable parameters associated with egg shells. Application of machine vision will expedite and extend the range of inspection and analysis.  The use of machine vision and electronic technology inherent to the system will reduce human error and subjectivity.  Enhanced evaluation of table eggs with incorporation into index selection will eventually benefit producers especially during the last third of the laying cycle.
