(York, Pa., September 25, 2023) York Ag, a dynamic supplier of holistic ingredient solutions that optimize animal well-being, became a sponsor of the 2023 Shell Egg Academy (SEA) at Purdue University (September 26-28, 2023). SEA is a learning experience and education opportunity for the egg production and processing industries. Through a combination of interactive classroom experiences taught by expert speakers, and hands-on learning, participants are provided the latest information on egg quality and egg safety.

Organized as a three-day program, SEA provides a deeper dive and training on shell egg food safety on the production side, sanitation food borne illness outbreaks, FDA’s egg rule, egg quality impacts, and table egg industry trends from a consumer perspective.

York Ag believes Everyone Deserves a Nutritious Meal®. In 1998, York Ag launched its first proprietary product called YORK CALCIUM CHIPS®, the egg laying industry’s preferred coarse calcium standard to create a superior eggshell. YORK CALCIUM CHIPS is a cornerstone in layer diets because it is intrinsically related to the formation of an eggshell while supporting skeletal integrity. Having optimal feed calcium levels helps hens replenish their bone reserve while maintaining optimal egg production capabilities.

"York Ag is honored to sponsor the 2023 Shell Egg Academy at Purdue University. This event plays a pivotal role in shaping the future of the egg industry by equipping professionals and students with the knowledge and skills needed to meet the growing demand for high-quality eggs," said Emily Goebel, Territory Sales Representative at York Ag and Purdue University alumna (Class of 2022).

According to recent statistics from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), The United States produced approximately 105.6 billion eggs in 2022. Egg consumption per capita was estimated at 287 eggs per person in 2022, which is a testament to the significant role of the egg industry in the nation's food supply.
