SInee 1929, the total volume of turkeys held in cold storage at the seasonal peak
becae larger In.relation to total production. Holdings of other poultry, however,
'utlkton to production have remained relatively constant. During-the war years, In-
Imt levels of current civilian consumption In the main marketing seasons and govern-
E procurement tended to limit commercial storage holdings. The percentage of the
faction stored in a give year depends upon such factors as the financial outcome
I storage operations the previous season and the level of prices in the into-storage
i0a, as well as the volume of production.
