1969 ANNUAL SUMMARY
Release:
January 23, 1970
3:00 P. M. EST

Honey production during 1969 totaled 283, 268, 000 pounds, 42 percent above
1968, according to the Crop Reporting Board. This record crop was produced by
4, 762, 000 colonies, nearly equal to last year's 4,770,000 colonies. The yield of
honey per colony was 59.5 pounds, nearly 18 pounds per colony higher than the
41.9 pounds average per colony in 1968. Production of beeswax in 1969 totaled
5,460,000 pounds, up 38 percent from 1968.

In mid-December, producers reported 67 million pounds of honey on hand for
sale compared with 43 million pounds a year ago. Stocks in mid-December
represented 24 percent of the 1969 honey production, compared with 21 percent
in 1968.

The 1969 season was very favorable with good weather conditions and nectar
supplies in nearly all States. Production in California and Minnesota was more
than double their 1968 crop.

The Nation's beekeepers received an average price of 17. 4 cents per pound
for 1969 sales of all honey. The 1968 average price for all honey was 16.9 cents.
Prices were higher for all types of honey sold at both wholesale and retail. These
prices relate to all wholesale and retail sales of extracted, chunk, and comb honey
from apiaries owned by farmers and non-farmers.

Extracted honey in wholesale lots sold for an average price of 15. 2 cents per
pound, one-half cent higher than in 1968. Unprocessed bulk honey averaged 13.6
cents per pound compared with 12. 9 cents a year earlier. Sales of processed
bulk honey averaged 17.0 cents per pound, one cent higher than in 1968. Proc-
essed package sales averaged 24. 0 cents per pound compared with 23. 8 cents a
year earlier.
