Te4 ag feed price ratio during 1941, 1942, and 1943 was very favorable for in-
g dii r b i action. In 1944 it was below the long-time average. However, egg pro-
ri-icreased in 1944, reflecting the large Iqcrease in the number of chickens
1...... A 10-percent reduction occurred in the number of chickens raised in
W19 Tis 7ill be reflected in decreased egg production in 1945.
Pee ora. g ij prices are expected to average slightly lower in 19145 than in 1944,
5ot R price ay:: also be slightly lower. Accordingly, egg-feed price relationships in
S Iay. co ..ntt:e relatively unfavorable for egg production.

October Egg Output Continues at ..
Record Levels

Egg production on farms during October 1944 totaled 273,2imnft taim
dozen (9.1 million cases). This exceeded the previous record of 0 I ,!
by 10 percent, and was 59 percent above the 1933-42 average. This a- e
put was the result of many favorable factors, among-which were the u tat'i
number of layers on farms for any October, easier feed supplies, an-d- : ...v .
favorable weather. The average. number of layers on farms was 375 t il't, "
birds, 2 percent above the October 1943, and 32 percent above' the i$,4 ::
average. The rate of lay per average layer continued far above any :i At.
previously.reported for October and'averaged 8.74 eggs per average lae- io .
5 percent above the averagea..for Oct.6ber 1943.

FIGURE 3.

Record large withdrawals of shell eggs from cold storage occurred in Septembpr
and October. November I holdings totaled 2.9 million cases, a new low for that dati.'
The large out-of-storage movement reflected a strong consumer demand and seasonally.
small supplies of fresh eggs.

The out-of-storage movement of frozen eggs since July has been large. Holding :
on November I, however, were the largest on record for that date-279 million pounds .
(7.4 million case shell egg equivalent). The carry-over of frozen eggs on January I,
1945 probably will be greater than in any previous year because of reduced requirements '
for dehydrating purposes this fall compared with the last 3 years.
