Commercial broiler production during the marketing year December 1, 1971,
through November 30, 1972 in the 22 States covered by the weekly placement reports
totaled 2,996 million birds, an increase of 5 percent from the 2,864 million pro-
duced in the 1971 marketing year. These 22 States produced 97 percent of the
Nation's broilers in 1971.

The average price received for the 1972 production in the 22 States averaged
14.1 cents per pound, up from an average of 13.7 cents per pound in 1971. The
gross income from broiler production was $1,570 million 9 percent more than the
$1,435 million grossed in 1971. The average live weight per bird produced in
1972 was 3.7 pounds, the same as a year earlier. The number of pounds produced
in the 22 States totaled 11,158 million pounds compared with 10,497 million pounds
in 1971.

There were 3,097 million broiler chicks placed in the 52 week period from
December 1971 through November 1972. This compares with 2,976 million in the
preceding year. Weekly placements reached a high of 65,863,000 during the week
ended April 29. The low was recorded during the week ending October 28 when
47,087,000 were placed.

The four leading States in the number of broiler chicks placed were Arkansas,
with 540.9 million; Georgia, with 453.5 million; Alabama, with 410.7 million; and
North Carolina, with 312.9 million. These States together accounted for 1,718.0
million broiler chicks, 55 percent of the total broiler chicks placed in the 22
States.
