USDA announces program to 00acilitate the export of further processed eggs and egg products "" by Secretary Vilsack :lJnited States Department of v : Agriculture e: The U.S. Department of iriculture (USDA), in collab- &apos;ffation with the U.S. Food and Dhag Administration (FDA), has idveloped a program to certify pi%cessed eggs and egg products 1"fir export providing new opport- mities for U.S. food exporters. .r "This is one more step the Obama Administration has taken d expand exports of high quality J!S. agricultural products," said tgriculture Secretary Tom Vii- 'ck. "This announcement will Iben new markets for U.S. egg ]rducts, generating additional e'onomic benefits and more jobs dross rural America. We are in t midst of the strongest period "'f agricultural exports in history d I look forward to making .ven more progress in the years "h'ead." "": The USDA's Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) will certify a wide range of products Sontaining eggs, including ome- lets, frozen egg patties, crepes, iard boiled eggs, mayonnaise ind food containing egg extracts. rhe total market for U.S. export of further processed egg and egg products worldwide is estimated to be $500 million. "This program was develop- ed to help U.S. processors and shippers take advantage of the growing global demand for these products," said AMS Adminis- ttator Dave Shipman. "This dffon allows producers to obtain ce'tification that some importing Countries require and will pro- ,/,ide new opportunities for them to market their products glo- Dally." ,., AMS worked with Southwest 1"2 Association . meeting USDA's Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS), other government agencies, and representatives from processed egg and egg food organizations, including the USA Poultry and Egg Export Council and the United Egg Association, to develop the program. "A number of countries around the world have asked for certification for egg-containing products. This initiative provides a means for U.S. exporters to ac- cess previously untapped mar- kets, creating jobs and support- ing USDA's export goals," said FAS Administrator Suzanne Heinen. AMS has unique capabilities in working with stakeholders to develop export certification pro- grams that meet the specific requirements of other countries. With years of experience cert- ifying eggs for export, AMS will now expand its services to sup- port the trade of egg-containing products. Once AMS verifies that a company meets the established certification requirements, the company will be listed as eligi- ble for export by product and country. An eligible company would contact AMS for an ex- port certificate covering accept- ed product and identify the for- eign country. The certificates and verifications will be com- pleted by AMS on a fee basis.

Revelations 2 i :4 says, "There will be a day when the former things will pass away and all things will become new." ! remember in the spring of 1952 l had a terrible toothache. At the time I didn't own a car so I hitchhiked to St. Paul to the dentist to get my tooth pulled. He checked the tooth and told me that it was so badly abscess- sed that he wouldn't dare pull the tooth. That meant 1 had to go back home with the same tooth- ache. As 1 was hitchhiking back home ! rehember a car passing me by without stopping. It went around the curve and stopped at an old country store. As I walked by the car someone called to me. ! looked over and it was the man who had passed me as I was walking. He told me he would give me a ride and that the rea- son he didn't stop before was be- cause it was too dangerous to stop in a blind curve. 1 walked over and there was the man, his wife and their small girl in the front seat. I got in the back seat and he looked back and called me by my name. He said, "Jessee, 1 have sent my son in the store to getyou something to eat." He-seemed to know more about, me than I knew about myself. H e gave me a ride to my intersection. I regretted getting out of his car. ! have never felt so much peace and such a calm as there was in that car. I knew I had never seen this man before and the tags were from Indiana. Years went by and 1 learned from stories that this man was a minister, a great man of God. His name was William Brawton. , A few years went by and he was killed in an automobile accidenL I' told some people that I believe that I had ridden with an Angehof God. This leads me to believe that God d0e.s, work in mysterious ways., i Redbud Festival tO: kick off with annual beautypageants The 29  annual Honaker older.
