Simon VanAert had an ‘egg-cellent’ idea. He designed a simple but effective egg trap that captures eggs laid in the feeding system of modern, free range poultry buildings. An aluminum bar directs the eggs into a holding tray until they can be retrieved. This has created numerous cost savings for the operation. The trap eliminates breakage of premium organic/free-range eggs dropping into the fresh food conveyor belt and increases saleable eggs and productivity.
