Shell Egg Academy Returns In-Person in April

Registration Opens January 24!


The Shell Egg Academy (SEA) from Purdue University Extension will open Monday, January 24, for registration!

Join us in-person April 26-28, 2022 at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana for SEA, which will provide interactive class sessions on egg quality and food safety for farmers and egg companies producing and processing table eggs.

A new-and-improved three-day schedule provides a deeper dive for companies looking for training on:

  • Shell egg food safety on the production side
  • Sanitation
  • Food borne illness outbreaks
  • FDA’s Egg Rule
  • Egg quality impacts
  • Table egg industry trends from a consumer perspective

SEA will also provide plenty of networking opportunities with industry participants and with Purdue University animal science students and faculty throughout the event.

At the end of each course, participants take an exam to earn a competency certificate.

“The 2021 Shell Egg Academy’s virtual edition provided a high level of information and interaction for participants seeking to further their knowledge about egg quality and egg safety,” said Dr. Darrin Karcher, SEA founder and Associate Professor and Poultry Extension Specialist at Purdue University. “We’re excited to build upon this success and provide this redesigned learning opportunity to fit the needs of the egg industry in 2022.”

Sponsorships are also available at a variety of price points for companies wishing to show their support of the egg industry.

Hotel block information will be announced on the SEA website,, as soon as it’s available.
