Abstract

It has become common to see large-scale, egg-layer units in many parts of Iowa. Although most units ship the eggs intact, some facilities also ship liquid eggs. At these locations, the eggshells are ground, stockpiled, and applied to farm fields. Farmers want to know if the eggshells have value as a liming source, and if so, at what rate they should be applied.
