These equipment modifications, which remove dirty
and cracked eggs earlier, result in a food safety gain,
Wesner added.

Employee shifts and expectations
The Hyde County facility packs all eggs on one shift.
"Two (packing) shifts does a couple of things to
an operation. In my opinion, the second shift is hard
to manage and has more turnover. You leave eggs
laying in a chicken house longer than they should and
then you end up with more loss and more cracks,"
Wesner said.
Rose Acre Farms used to size its case packing and
grading equipment to do all the farm's eggs in eight hours.
Now, with added capacity, it can get employees out
without overtime if there are any hiccups during the day.
Employees like having reliable work hours instead of
having to work late unexpectedly.
At some of Rose Acre's farms, there have been
schedule adaptions to, for example, start sanitation while
the day crew is still on-site. This creates an understanding
of the role of each shift and allows each shift to work to
help the other because what one shift does affects the
other shift's next day.
"Sanitation night manager is one of the key roles here.
If they are not being brought into the picture and made
part of the team, then you're not going to get the results
you're looking for," Wesner said.
As companies work to improve animal welfare, food
safety and employee safety cultures at any location,
employee retention becomes even more important. With
the changes made to facilities and processes, companies
must keep the impact to the worker in mind, Wesner said.

Management should consider questions like:
■ Are the shower facilities nice and clean? Do employees

have the privacy they want?

The Specht Varia Plus system is the result of our
decade-long experience. Specht has been producing
system for poultry farming since 1967.
The advantages of the Specht Varia Plus System

>> Additional areas above the nest and the approach
sheet, without disturbing the overview.
>> Water, feed, rest area and nest units are available
in all levels of the system.
>> Short distances to the nest as nests have been
integrated in every tier and thus the highest nest
acceptance and little mislaid eggs.
>> The manure belts beneath the system are
designed not too wide, Hereby the manure belts
run trouble-free and minimum wear is ensured.

■ Has management communicated that food safety,

employee safety and animal welfare are a priority?
"Yes, we want to get all the eggs packed, but they have
to be done the right way," Wesner said. ■
