USDA DATA ON CAGE-FREE PRODUCTION

03/05/2019

Based on the importance of cage-free production, the USDA-AMS issues a monthly report on volumes and prices for the information of Industry stakeholders. There is some doubt as to the accuracy of the monthly flock numbers and the question is raised whether it would not be more desirable to post accurate quarterly data in place of unconvincing monthly figures with similar hen data for consecutive months.

EGG-NEWS summarizes and comments on data and trends in the monthly USDA Cage-Free Report, supplementing the information posted weekly in the EGG-NEWS Egg Weekly Price and Inventory Report.

The respective numbers of hens in organic and cage-free flocks should reflect the realities of supply and demand in the market over successive quarters.

MOBA – CONTROL SYSTEM UPDATE KITS AVAILABLE FOR DIAMOND GRADERS

11/21/2016

    

The on-going support and improved performance of the Diamond brand Grading Systems is very important to us.  MOBA is continuing the long established commitment to our customers as a "Reliable" parts and service provider. 

 

MOBA has created and released DC upgrades for the Diamond 2100, 8200, 8300, and 8400 graders, MOBA has released each of these models. These kits replace all of the circuit cards and power supplies originally used on these machines with a modern control system and enhanced software.

Each of the DC upgrades is named for the system that it will be used on, and were designed to eliminate the circuit card obsolescence issues we are facing with many of these older parts.  These updates can typically be installed over night resulting in minimal down time.  Each kit is configured specifically for the grader that it will be installed on depending on the number of packing lanes it has as well as the options that it is equipped with.

Please review the technical information and specifications included in this mail-out and advise us of your future requirements. For additional technical information and prices, please contact your local MOBA sales person:
