Egg production up in October – Voice Of Muscatine

Egg production up in October

The USDA says 9.55 billion eggs were produced in the U.S. during October, up 4% on the year, with a 3% increase in layers.

That was due to year-to-year improvements in the number of layers and the rate of lay, even as the data points to lower egg and broiler supplies later this year due to demand uncertainties.

Most of the monthly total was table eggs at 8.2 billion, along with 1.3 billion hatching eggs, including 1.2 billion broiler-type and 98 million egg-type.
