Video provides some info on Nebraska egg industry

Did you know May is egg month? (It's also beef month - So by having steak and eggs for breakfast you can celebrate two things at once. And have a really good meal.)

There are quite a few eggs produced in Nebraska - but these are not the eggs you find in cartons at the grocery store. Instead, the eggs go to "breakers" - which do exactly as their name implies: they break the eggs. But that's a good thing in this case because those eggs end up in all sorts of higher value products - from cake mixes to mayonnaise.

The Alliance for the Future of Agriculture in Nebraska (A-FAN) has posted a video about a Nebraska egg producer online. Check it out below.
