Today I was hosted by Rob Bebbington a 2009 Nuffield Scholar from Whitchurch. Rob is a director in a farm contracting business called Fieldfare farmers Ltd. I met Robs business partner Peter and his wife Susan. They showed me through the production recording software they use called Gate Keeper.
Checking out the workings of Gate keeper with Peter & Susan.

The packing plant packs 1.4 million eggs per day and is totally automated. Each egg is individually checked for defects before packing and is untouched by human hands from the time they leave the chicken to the time the pallet of eggs is loaded into a semi trailer.
