All future Statistical Reporting Service reports of annual produc-
tion, disposition, cash receipts, and gross income estimates for
chickens, eggs and broilers will be published on a December 1
through November 30, marketing year basis. This is consistent with
the changes in the poultry inventory to December 1 in the recent
modifications of the poultry estimating program. The 1972 releases
will include comparable data for 1970 and 1971. Estimates for 1969
and earlier years will remain on a calendar year basis.
