Necessity Eggs on an Inventor

Record #:
Grady Fowler and Ben Venable of Surry County came up with an idea for an automatic egg gathering system. Their invention, called the Fowler Venable System, consists of nesting units which constitute the conveyor, the conveyor drive, and a vacuum system which cleans the conveyor after each cycle. The new system is being tested by various poultry companies, and is expected to drastically improve efficiency and work operations.
