EGG PRODUCTION
Reporters indicate at 16 percnnt laiger
egg production per farm   on March 1
than a year ago. Flocks averaged 37.1
eggs per day this month compared with
32.2 eggs a month ago and 32.0 eggs a
Year ago. Although the number of hens
and pullets per farm  on March 1 was
97.9, or a 2 percent drop from February,

An extremely unfavorable feed- gg
ratio trend existed in Feirruary wrhe'n
10 dozen eggs would bry orrly 97
pounds of ration compared with neairly
105 pounds in January and 217 pounds
last F e b r u a r y. Ir; February 1,000
pounds of poultry ration cost $20.73,
which was over 73 percent more than
a year ago, and slightly above the Jan-
uary cost.
Chicken prices in February averaged
13.3 cents which is slightly above Jan-
uary. Egg prices declined from 21.6
cents in January to 20.1 cents per dozen
in February. These prices are now
nearly 6 cents per dozen less than a
year ago which is a relatively large de-
cline, and when combined with the high
price of feed it puts the producer of
eggs at a decided disadvantage.
