Egg Production
Wisconsin farm flocks produced 179
million eggs during August. This was
over 5 percent higher than August
last year and nearly 3 percent higher
than the 5-year August average. A
high rate of egg production made this
Increase possible. The August rate of
lay per layer was the highest on
record for the month since 1925 when
monthly records were started. During
August the number of layers on farms
in the state was about 1 percent over
the same month a year ago, but 4
percent under the 5-year average for
August.
Like the state, the nation's farm
flocks also laid more eggs in August
than during the same month last year.
The August record total of 4,221 mil-
lion eggs produced was between 9 and
10 percent higher than the number
laid in August 1949. The high egg
production in August this year com-
pared with the same month a year ago
was due both to a larger number of
layers on hand and a record August
rate of lay. The August number of
layers on hand exceeded the number
for August last year by about 6 per-
cent.
Wisconsin farmers received a higher
price for both chickens and eggs in
August than one m o n t h earlier.
Chicken prices averaged 25.3 cents per
pound in August compared with 25.2
cents per pound in July. Chickens
averaged 25.6 cents per pound in Au-
gust 1949. An average price of 36.1
cents per dozen for eggs was reported
in August while one month and one
year before the averages were 31.2
and 48.1 cents respectively. The ad-
vance in egg prices from July to Au-
gust was greater than the usual sea-
sonal increase.
Wisconsin Farm Prices
Price levels for farm products have
advanced each month since mid-April.
The index of Wisconsin farm pro duct
prices received by farmers in August
was 261 percent of the 1910-14 pe-
riod and compares with a level of
254 percent for July and 251 percent
for August a year ago. The exchange
value of the Wisconsin farmer's dol-
lar in terms of purchasing power con-
tinues below the 1910-1914 parity
level and was unchanged from August
1949. Also the cash income to farmers
for the first nine months of 1950 has
been smaller than for the same period
last year. Like other parts of our
