Gregg smart eggs

What if… you could reduce eggshell damage up to a factor of 10!

As hens age, the quality of their egg shell becomes weaker and more delicate. During automatic egg collection, packing and transport eggs are exposed to G-forces, mainly at transition points that can cause the egg shell to crack.

Prevent cracks, use the Gregg smart eggs.

How does it work?

The Gregg smart egg is an electronic egg full of sensors registering G-forces across all transition points from nest to tray.

Scientific research* in layer hens has shown that decreasing G-forces down to 20 G can reduce the crack occurrence from 7.7% to 0.3 - 1%. Studies** have also shown that hairline cracks in hatching eggs can result in 40% less hatchability.

With the Gregg you can easily identify those transition points that cause unnecessary damage to the eggs. Once identified you can have the problem fixed!
