March 1967

April 14, 1967

S POSiTi0 Pro auction

Hatcheries produced 322 million chicks during March 1967, an increase of 7 per-
cent from a year earlier, according to the Crop Reporting Board. The March hatch
of broiler-type chicks totaled 256 million, 8 percent more than a year earlier.
During the first 3 months of 1967, there were 694 million broiler chicks produced,
up 4 percent from the same months last year. Broiler-type eggs in incubator on
April 1 were up 1 percent from a year earlier.

Egg-type chicks hatched during March are estimated at 67 million, 3 percent more
than in March 1966. The March egg-type hatch was above a year earlier in all but
the North Atlantic and the West North Central regions, which were down 8 percent
each. The largest regional increase from March 1966 was 23 percent in the South
Atlantic followed by 14 percent in the West, 4 percent in the East North Central,
and 1 percent in the South Central. During the first 3 months of 1967, there were
154 million egg-type chicks hatched, up 8 percent from the same 3 months in 1966.
The number of egg-type chicks in incubator on April 1 was 9 percent below a year
earlier. This is the first time since October 1965 that the expected egg-type hatch
will be below a year earlier. The 2 percent decrease of eggs in incubator April 1,
1967 reported for all chickens indicates the first decline in all chick hatch from a
year earlier since April 1965.

Poult Production

Poult production of all breeds during March 1967 totaled 22, 462, 000, up 6 percent
from the 21, 228, 000 poults hatched a year earlier. The hatch of heavy breeds totaled
21,325,000 birds compared with 20,045,000 birds the same month a year earlier.
Light breeds totaled 1, 137, 000 poults, down 4 percent. There were 44, 779, 000 poults
hatched during the first 3 months of 1967, a 17-percent increase from the corres-
ponding period of 1966. The number of turkey eggs in incubator on April 1, 1967
totaled 36,010, 000, down 2 percent from April 1 last year. This 2 percent decline
from a year earlier is the first reported decrease from a year earlier since
July 1966.
