at State college, announced today af
ter studying the records.
The reports came from all parts
of the state, Mr. Secse said, and
show that the poultry industry is
now very well standardized and or
ganized. The carlot shipments of
poultry made by county farm agents
and others, he said, unquestionably
have helped to bring about stand
ardization in prices of poultry a
pound and prices of eggs a dozer
The farmers making the reports
to Mr. Reese have an average of
132 l ens per farm and these birds
average 16.2 eggs each for the
month, which is 54 per cent produc
tion. The average sale price of the
eggs was 316 cents a dozen, some
farmers receiving as high as 42 cents
and others getting only 25 cents
per dozen The feed cost for a
dozen eggs was 15.2 cents and the
feed cost for each bird averaged
19.2 cents. This was in accord witn
experimental findings which show
that It costs an average of 20 cents
to feed one hen one month, Mr
Mr. Scese. in commenting on the
record for June. said that. for
farmers to maintain a 50 per cent
production through the remainder
of July and In August, the flocks
must be culled closely. The cull hen
should be sold as soon as she stops
laying, he says, because she catr,
enough to take the profit out of
the business. The trap nest is the
best way of finding which hens lay
and which do not. Such nests will
