Marketing Eggs by Parcel Post

Description: "Whether the marketing of eggs by parcel post should be attempted by any particular producer will depend on his present available markets, the possibility of securing a satisfactory customer or customers, and the care taken to follow tests and approved methods in preparing the eggs for shipment. Failures in attempting to ship eggs by parcel post have resulted because proper precautions as to package or container, packing, and labeling were not observed. This bulletin presents conclusions from investigations made by the Office of Markets and Rural Organization in cooperation with the Post Office Department and gives detailed information as to the use of the parcel post." -- p. 2

The present bulletin contains general information [with regard to prices, packaging, and quality standards]...which should be of use to those producers and consumers who are interested in the more general phases of the subject." -- title page
