SUMMARY


About 7 percent more farm chickens are likely to be raised in 1949
than in 1948, according to farmerst intentions to buy baby chicks as of
February 1, 1949. An increase in the proportion of sexed chicks purchased
is expected. With more chickens raised this year, numbers of potential
layers on January 1, 1950 are likely to be slightly larger than on
January 1, 1948%

Per capital consumption of eggs in 1948, at about 388 eggs, was
second only to the 397 record of 1945. Consumption in 19L7 was 380 eggs
per capital. With disposable income in 1948 at record levels, and supplies
of red meats smaller than in 1947, both farm and retail prices for eggs
averaged the highest on record. Despite the high rate of consumption,
the Department of Agriculture found it necessary to purchase the equiva-
lent of 85 million dozen eggs to maintain farm prices at the support level
90 percent of parity. Supports in 1948 were higher, due to the rise in
prices of commodities farmers buy., In 1947, when production was only
slightly above 1948, support purchases were equivalent to 268 million
dozens.

Placenents of commercial broiler chicks continued at record levels
through February. Prices were below mid-December in all areas and further
declines are expected. Prices of broilers at Salisbury, Maryland, in late
February were about 5 cents per pound below mid-December- 19L8-

The number of turkey.breeder hens on farms January 1, 1949, was
3-7 millions, 33 percent more than last January 1. This number will be
more than adequate, with normal culling rates, to provide an ample supply
of hatching eggs for the 25 percent increase in turkey production now in-
dicated for 1949,




FEBRUARY 1949 4 -

Poultrymen may expect both lower total coits of.production and lower
prices in 1949. The cost of the farm po~iltry ration may average about one-
fifth lower than in 1948., but farm wage rates .and .baby chick costs are
expected to be about the same. With larger total supplies cf poultry meat
in prospect for 1969, lower-average prices are probable farm chickens,
commercial broilers, and turkeys. If the parity index declines, thus
permitting a decline in the support level, prices of eggs will also average
lower. Supplies of eggs w'll probably be larger-in 1999.

Farmers'. Intentions Indicate 7 Percent
More Ohickns in 1 ..

Farmers' intentions as of February 1, 1949 to buy baby chicks indi-
cate that about 7 percent more farm chickens are likely to be raised in
19&9 than in 1948. If realized', ths would mean about 680 millions thia
year compared to the preliminary estimate of 635 millions for last year.

By regions, intended 19,9 purchases as a percentage of 1948 purchases
are as follows: New England, 111 percent; Middle Atlantic, 114; East North
Central, -99; West North Central, 102; South Atlantic, .105; East South
,Central, 107; West South -Central, 117,; Mountain, 110; Pacific, .117..

Farmers reported that 66. percent of their chicks purchase last year
were straight-run chicks; 30 percent were pullet chicks and 4. percent
cockerels. This year they plan to buy 64 percent straight-run. chicks,
31 percent pullets, and 5 percent cockerels. In 1947, relative purchases
of straight-run, pullet, and cockbrel-chieks.were-70, 26, and 4 percent,
respectively. ., ..

The trend over the past few years toward purchases.of a larger pro-
portion of sexed pullets means that the number-of pullets.on hand in the
fall is'likely to be higher in relation to-numbers of farm chickenE raised
th'an'in earlier years. It also reflects in part-a relative decrease,in
the importance of farm chickens in the total supply of.poultry meat. (See
June-July Poultry and Egg..Situation, for comparisoQ of pullets January 1 as
percentage of farm chickens raised.)
If farmers' intentions to purchase baby chicks are carried out, it
is probable,that there will be a slightly larger number of potential layers
on farms January 1, 1950 than on January 1, 19 9.
January Farm Eg. Production Was Record "'
Despite Western Weather
Despite unfavorable weather for egg production in the Great Plains
and Western States,.January 19A9 farm egg production reached A,567 million
eggs, 6 percent:more than last-January and 29'percent above the 1938-47 aver-
age. Weather in other areas was favorable, andthe.rate of lay in the United
States averaged 12.1 eggs per layer compared with 111l in January last year.
The Nation's laying flock averaged 377.3 millions in January, 3 percent fewer
than in 1948, but about the same as the 10-year average.
A revision of 1948 egg production figures indicates that output on
farms reached 55,168 million eggs, slightly below the 1947 production of
55,252 million eggs. Indicated output was slightly above 1947 in the North
Atlantic, East North Central, and Western regions, and below last year in
other regions.




PES-133 -5 -

Prices of eggs declined seasonally between December 15, 1948 and
January 15, 1949, from 52.8 cents to 47.1 cents per dozen at the farm-
level. Lapt year the decline during the same period was from 58.7 cents
on December 15, 1947 to 48.7 cents per dozen on January 15, 1948.
Proportion of Pullets in Potential Layers
January 1_ 1949 Dov to 65 Percent

Chickens on farms January 1, 1949, excluding commercial broilers,
totaled 4L8.8 millions, 3 percent fewer than a year earlier and 6 percent
below the 1938-47 average. Pullet holdings totaled 268.3 millions, 6 per-
cent below January 1, 1948, but hens numbered 144.9 millions, 3 percent
above a year earlier. Other chickens increased about 2 percent to
35.7 millions.

Although farmers raised 14A percent fewer chickens in 1948 than in
1947, they retained a larger-than-usual proportion of the pullets raised
in 1948. Because of lower feed costs in the latter half of 19/8, culling
of hens was reduced. Pullets constituted 65 percent of the total of
413.2 million hens and pullets on farms January 1, 1949 as compared to
67 percent on January 1, 1948. The percentage of pullets might have been
even lower had not producers saved a larger-than usual percentage of those
raised in 19,/8.

(See January 1949 Poultry and Egg Situation for discussion of role
of percentage of pullets in increasing rate of lay.)
Fewer Layers, More Turkey Breeders on Farms
January 1 Than Year Ago

Potential layers on farms February 1, 19h9 numbered 395.1 millions,
3 percent fewer than the 406.9 millions a year earlier, and 21.0 millions
fewer than on January 1, 1948. The number of laying hens and pullets
seldom has any appreciable effect on the relative supplies of eggs used
for hatching. Pullets not of laying age on farms February 1, 1949 num-
bered 20.9 million, 4 percent fewer than a year earlier, and the smallest
number in 10 years of record.

In the case of turkeys, however, the number of breeder hens on farms
limits the hatching egg supply and hence the number of poults which can be
started. Numbers in 1949 are more than adequate to meet expected demands.
The 3.7 millions breeder hens on hand January 1, 1949 represent a 33 per-
cent increase over the 2.8 millions January 1, 1948. In order to raise
39.5 million birds in 1949--25 percent more than last year--an output of
10.7 turkeys raised per breeder hen January 1 would have to be attained.
In 19L8, the ratio was 11.3 turkeys raised per breeder hen January 1, 1948.
If a high percentage of the breeder hens on hand at the beginning of 1949
is retained for hatching egg production through the spring months, farmerst
'intentions relative to 1949 turkey production could easily be realized.
Last year many breeders were sold off in the first few months of the hatching
season due to the relatively unfavorable ratio between feed and turkey prices.
With turkey prices still at record levels, and'feed lower, there is much less
reason to curtail the number of turkey breeders on hand during the current
hatching season.




FEBRUARY 1949 6 -

.The number of turkeys other than breeder hkns on "farms January 1,
1949 was 1.8 millions, 7 percent higher than the 1.7 millions a year pre4-
vious. Chickens other than hens andr nullots numbered 35.7 millions, a
2 percent increase from January 1, 1948 numbers..

Consumption of Egrs in 1948 was Second ......
Hi ghest on Record

Per capital consumption of eggs in.Q48 'was about 388 eggs, the -econd
highest on record. Consumption rose to a peak of 397 eggs per capital in
1945, declined to 374 eggs in 1946, but. increased-to 380 eggs in 1947.-

The further increase in 1948 occurred while per capital disposable
income reached record levels and supplies of red meats were still short
enough relative to demand to keep prices, rcl'itively hiph. Both farm and
retail prices of eggs were at record levels throilih mnst of 1948. Despite
the. high level of consumption, the Department cf Agriculture found it-
necessary to purchase the equivalent of 35 million dozen for price support
purposes compared to 268 million in 1947 for price support and foreign .
supply programs. Famn egg prices averaged 90 percent of parity; for the-
year as a who]e,

The- Department of Agriculture recently announced conti-nuation of its
35 cent minimum sunport level through 1ay. I.nder this -rovision, processors
are reqrited to certify that proniucers wer,: paid a minimum of 35 cents per
dozen for s ell eegs in the U divest. Through February 19, 7.7 million pounds
of dried egrs (equivalent to albut 23 million dozens) had been acquired
under 1Q49 price-support operations. In 1434, purchases did not begin
until Ilay. If purchases from l..4.9 production continue through Iday at a
level at least as high as present, total purchases in 1949 will probably be
larger than in 1Y eo

Consumption of chicken in 1948 was about 22.7 pounds. per capital, and
consumption of turkeys about 3.5 pounds per capital, both somewhat lower
than in 1947.

In 1949, a further increas in civilian population, expansion of
military requirements, and some '-uilding up of storage stocks of chickens
and turkeys during the latter part of the year may partly offset the
effects of expected increases in the production of eggs, chickens, and
turkeys. As a result, per capital consumption of eggs is likely to be
slightly lower than in 1948, and per capital consumption of chickens ana
turkeys only slightly larger.

Broiler Chick Placements Continuing
at Record Levels

Commercial broiler producers were continuing to start broiler chicks
in record numbers through late Tebruary. ?iaccmrr- ts in all 7 of the commer-
ial broiler areas for whLch records arc available were substantially higher
than a year -arlier About 31.6 million chicks were started in th'.-se 7
areas in January, indicating a probable national rate of placement almost
half again as large as in January 1940, and probably about one fourth larger
than the previous record in January 1945.




1*33 -.7

I Broiler prices in all areas declined between mid-December and late
February. Prices received for broilers .at Salisbury, ilaryland for example
dropped about 5 cents.per pound during this period to a low of 28.8 cents
per pound by late February.

Further price declines are probable. Two factors, however, will
tend to off set.the effects of continuing large market offerings. Storage
stocks-of chicken on February 1 were at t-Ueir lowest level in 33 years
for that date and marketing of.fowl and other farm chickens are not
Slkely to be as lare during the.first quarter of 1949 as in the same
period of 1948. However, if the lower level -of prices of red meats at
retail is sustained during the next few months, demand for commercial
broilers might be reduced. As a result, with continued large marketing,
broiler prices during the next few months probably will be lower than
they are now, particularly in view of expected earlier marketings of
: idwest farm poultry..

Lower Costs for Poultrymen in.1949
and Lower-.Prices

Although feed prices will be substantially lower in 1949 than a
year earlier,: other major costs of raising chicken. are not likely to de-
cline very much. The cost of the farm ooultry ration may average about
one-fifth under 1948, but farm wage rates and baby chick costs are ex-
pecdted to be.&bout the same as.last year.' With. the .decline in feed cost,
however, -t6tal- costs-'6hould be somewhat lower.

Of the .three-major- costs of rasin2 chickens, farm labor wage. rates
increased the most, between 1935-39 and 1948 about 367 percent as in-
dicated by the BAE index of comoosite farm wage rates.for thc.United
States. as a iole. The..cost of the U. S. poultry ration increased
238 percent and the average U. S. price paid by farmers for baby chicks
was up .214 percent.

Feed and baby chick costs arc the most important cash costs in-
volved in raising chickens in most areas. Labor costs are important to
commercial broiler producers and to many commercial egg farms, but pro-
bably not of much concern to family-sized poultry farms or general farms
where care of the poultry flock is a part-time job of family members.
The 1944 Census indicated that about half of the epg-producinr farms had
less than 50 birds and produced only 13 percent of the total cgY' output.
Despite the threefold increase in farm wage rates since the prewar years,
total costs have not fully reflected this increase, because it has been
partly offset by better management practices such a s labor-saving equip-
ment, better feeds, and better quality chicks. This has likely meant fewer
units of labor per unit of output, and hence more efficient use of labor
on poultry farms.

1-'uch of the cost outlook analysis with respect to raising chickens
in 1949 can be equally vel1 applied to egg production and to raising turkeys.
On commercial eg, farms, the major costs are feed, labor, and flock de-
preciation; and, for raising turkeys, feed, cost of poults, and labor.
Total costs of producing eggs and raising turkeys in 1949, therefore, are
also likely to be below those of 1948.




FEBRUARY 1949 8 -

Prices received by farmers for poultry products have, "in general,
risen less percentagewise since 1935-39 than most costs. Farm chicken
and commercial broiler prices averaged somewhat less than twice their
prewar level 'by 1948, while eggs and turkeys were just over twice the
1935-39 averages.

Such factors as improvements in production technology, higher rates
of gain per pound of feed consumed, higher rates of lay per bird, contin-
uation of the trend toward larger units, and greater specialization in the
poultry industry since 1935-39 probably more than offset higher cost rates.
As a result, net returns per unit have probably been at least as large
during recent years as in the prewar period.

In 1949, increases in production are expected for eggs, farm chick-
ens, and turkeys. Commercial broiler output is likely to be at least as
large as in 1948. Prices received by producers for poultry meat are all .
expected to average somewhat lower than last year, thus largely offsetting
declines expected in total costs of production. If the parity index de-
clines, support prices for cggs could be lowered, and, hence egg prices
might also average lower in 1949.

SELECTED SERIES OF BACKGROUND DATA ON POULTRY PRODUCTION

The accompanying tables contain historical data pertinent to con-
sideration 6of'ih present position and future prospects of the poultry
industry.of the United States. Many of the monthly series are carried
regularly on page 2 of The Poultry and Egg Situation. The annual series
have been published infrequently. Sources for comparable current data,
when available, are indicated on each table.
