Broiler Production and Gross Income
Broiler Chicks Placed
Broiler Eggs Set

Commercial broiler production during the marketing year December 1,
1972 through November 30, 1973 in the 21 States covered by the weekly place-
ment reports totaled 2,923 million birds, a decrease of 2 percent from the
2,993 million produced in the 1972 marketing year. These 21 States produced
97 percent of the Nation's broilers in 1972.

The average price received for the 1973 production in the 21 States
averaged 23.9 cents per pound, up from an average of 14.1 cents per pound in
1972. The gross income from broiler production was 2,596 million dollars -
two-thirds more than the 1,568 million dollars grossed in 1972. The average
live weight per bird produced in 1973 was 3.7 pounds, the same as a year
earlier. The number of pounds produced in the 21 States totaled 10,870 mil-
lion pounds compared with 11,144 million pounds in 1972.

There were 3,023 million broiler chicks placed in the 52 week period
from December 1972 through November 1973. This compares with 3,094 million
in the preceding year. Weekly placements reached a high of 64,167,000 chicks
during the week ended April 21. The low was recorded during the week ending
November 3 when 48,744,000 were placed.
