WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Virtual by Purdue Extension Shell Egg Academy (SEA) will meet from June 21 to 25 via Zoom. Interactive classroom sessions will cover egg quality and food safety for farmers and egg companies producing and processing table eggs.
Experts from Purdue University and the United States will discuss live hen production and egg safety in the first class June 21-23 and egg processing and food safety June 23-25. Participants will also receive hands-on learning activities via a Lab-In-A-Box (LAB) that will be sent to them prior to the course.
