Egg Quality Manual

It is important that the egg industry has a guideline on egg shell quality and internal quality that can realistically be achieved in a commercial setting.

Australian Eggs has produced the Egg Quality Manual to allow farmers to compare the internal and shell quality of their eggs with typical industry data and help make informed production decisions.

The Egg Quality Manual is available at this link.

Vaccination training manual


The manual will help egg farm staff gain the necessary skills, knowledge and attitudes to become a competent vaccinator. Competent vaccinators are essential for the egg industry, as vaccination is effective only if it is carried out according to the manufacturer’s instructions. To do this you must receive, transport, store, prepare and administer vaccines correctly so that an effective dose is applied to each bird.

Vaccination improves bird health and welfare, and maximises egg production by preventing infectious disease outbreaks. It allows farm managers to prevent, rather than try to cure, disease. This is an essential part of ensuring the viability of individual farms and the egg industry as a whole.
