May 1967 :

'-- June 15, 1967

U DEPOSITOhick Production

Hatcheries produced 327 million chicks during May 1967, a decrease of 8
million from the 335 million produced in May 1966 according to the Crop Report-
ing Board. The May hatch of broiler-type chicks totaled 257 million, 1 percent
less than the corresponding month a year earlier. During the first 5 months of
1967, there were 1, 200 million broiler chicks produced, up 3 percent from the
same months last year. Broiler-type eggs in incubator on June 1 were down 3
percent from a year earlier.

The number of egg-type chicks hatched during May is estimated at 70 million,
9 percent less than in May 1966. All regions recorded decreases from a year
earlier, except East North Central which was up 4 percent. The decreases were
as follows: South Central and West North Central both 15 percent, North Atlantic
13 percent, South Atlantic and West both 3 percent.

During the first 5 months of 1967, there were 300 million egg-type chicks
hatched, the same as reported for the corresponding period in 1966. The number
of egg-type eggs in incubator on June I was down 9 percent below June 1 a year
earlier. This is the third consecutive month that egg-type eggs in incubator have
been below the corresponding month of the previous year.

Poult Production

Poult production for all breeds during May 1967 totaled 23, 554, 000, down 4
percent from the May 1966 hatch of 24,604, 000. The hatch of heavy breeds totaled
22, 186,000 poults compared with 22,681,000 poults the same month a year earlier.
Light breeds totaled 1, 368,000, down 29 percent. There were 91, 251,000 poults
hatched during the first 5 months of 1967, a 6-percent increase from the corres-
ponding period of 1966. The number of turkey eggs in incubator on June 1, 1967
totaled 34, 373, 000, up 5 percent from June 1 last year.
