EGG BUSINESS IN
COUNTY IS GAIN
ING, SAYS REPORT
Three County Poultry Rais-j
ers Lead State in Pro- ;
duction During Year
County Agent, J. L. Robinson, stat- i
ed last week that Haywood county is
becoming one of the leading poultry
raising counties in this section of!
the state. He pointed out the .':u-t
'. that this countv was especially suit- !
able for poultry raising, despite the j
fact that many were of 'the opinion i
that it was not-
Mr. Robinson gave a few facts and
figures of three Haywood poultry va:s- :
ers in comparison with the cither;
raisers cover the state and it seems :
that the Haywood men are in the le:ul. '
Three Haywood poultrymoti, Van
C. Wells, Glen 11. Smathers and E.
J. Pinner were among the 1211 in the '
.u.v vliv.i vviiii,ivivi nil- .vein KK
record of their poultry fhx'ks.
It is interesting to note the com
parison of the combined record of
these three and that of the entire
group in the state. The Haywood menj
averaged. .'170 birds per, farm, in the,
state the average whs 194. The Hay
wood men averaged 159 egg . per;
bird, the state average was 147. Tli.it-:
difference of a dozen eggs per hen is
a very material advantage.
Perhaps a large part of this ad
vantage is gained by the extra feed
consUpied, 7C.U lbs per bird by Hay
wood birds and 7:3.i lbs. per bird over
the,i -state. It -took 5.0 lbs of feed to
produce a dozen eggs over1' the state,
but here only. 5,7 lbs. This looks like
the. Haywood men are pretty good
f eedtt .
Djtfing January and February t.hq
Haytvood poultrymen 'were 'quite a bit
aboie the state average in percent
pioijtibtion' or eggs per bin!. Through
Marcli and April they fell1 just about
as much below, were -equal in May
andlthen were far ahead through the
summer up to Oct. 1, when the re
cord was completed. At least the
last part of this, the. --high -production
through June to October, was the
same as loi- last year, l-ronamy our
cooler climate enables the hens to
continue laying during the hot months;
The fact that this period also corres-;
ponds to our tourist sPasou and a re
latively high price of eggs ought" to
enable Haywood poultrymen ti plan
and take care of our tourist -heed .
at. this time.
From November -through April the
cost .of eggs for the Haywood men
was considerably higher than for the
state. From then through the bal
ance of the year the cost was less
than for the state. Probably warmer
weather through March and April in
the tower sections of the state gave
them an advantage, causing their pro
duction to run above ours and the
This does not explain, however, why
the Haywood costs should have been
from one to over five cents higher
per dozen eggs, from November 1 ?o
March 1, when our production was
equal or better than over the state.
The eggs in Haywood sold for one
cent more per dozen than over the
state and this advantage was gained
late in the season. The return above
feed cost for the state was $1.39 per
bird, while in Haywood it was $1.48
- The October reports show the same
comparison as for the late summer.
Our men produced oyer three eggs
per hen more, at a cost of fpur cents
less per dozen than for the state.
