lumber of layers on hand during Jan-
uary was the second highest on rec-
ord for the month, being exceeded
only in January 1944. The rate of
production continues high. Wiscon-
sin layers averaged 14.32 eggs per
layer during the month. This is about
3 percent higher than January a
year ago and 13 percent above the
5-year, 1944-48, average for t h e
month.
Farm flocks of the nation have 7
percent more layers on hand than in
January last year but there are about
3 percent fewer layers than the 5-
year, 1944-48, average number for
the month. Layers averaged 12.75
eggs per layer-5 percent higher than
a year ago and about one-fifth higher
than the 5-year average for that
month. As a result of larger numbers
and higher rate of production Janu-
ary egg production was the highest
on record for the month.
