Arizona Egg Producer Invests in Robotic Loader

September 29, 2011 11:07 AM

We are proud to introduce "Big Bill" at Arizona's Hickman Family Farms, the state's only commercial egg producer. Big Bill is the newest member to our team at our Ak Chin Maricopa Farm, a family owned, fourth-generation farm.

This advancement in technology was a welcome addition by our staff, who have loaded millions of egg cases throughout the years. Santiago Juarez, our veteran loader, was happy to see Bill arrive!

Today, Big Bill is hoisting 20 half-cases of eggs in 60 seconds. That equates to 1,200 half-cases every hour.
