Some Interesting Figures on the
F Trice and A umber of Eiggs Marketed
in State the Past. Year.
Fort Worth, Texas.-?'TOe recent
high price of eggs has caused the Farmer's
union to conduct an investigation
into the poultry Conditions of the
notion, and Peter Romford lectured of
the National Farmers uniongave out
the following statement concerning
conditions in this State:
"We market 65 p)er cent of our egg
crop in April, May Wd June, although
the consumption f>f eggs runs very
nearly even throughout the dntire
f year. The American farmer today is ]
paying the middleman the princely!
sum of $238^00,000 per annum for
storing and/ selling eggs. This sum of
money -would build and equip sufficient
storage to care for the agricultural
' production of the nation. The value
of the nation's eggs production
during a decade is equivalent in valne
to all the farm property in Texas,
would build a city the size of St. Louis
and would pay the national debts of
Spain, Japan and the United States
'"The poultry yard census of continental
United States taken by tfiie
federal government shows that the
Termers of this country gather approximately
1,591,311,000 dozen eggs
per ennum, which sell at a farm price
of $306,688, 960, and a retail price of
$545, 2S9, 000. These eggs, according
to the market reports, are marketed
about as follows:
fJanuary, 47,739,000 dozen; February,
63,652,000 dozen; March, 65,000,000
dozen; April, 302,349,000 dozen; May,
318,262,000 dozen; June, 270,432,000
dozen; July, 79,565,000 dozen; August,
143,218,000 dozen; September, 111,
311, 000 dozen; October, 7?,56~>.<>oo
dozen; November, 47,739,000 dozen;
December, 64,152,000 dozen.
The average farm price of eggs per
annum is known to be 20 cents per
dozen, and the average retail price
was 35 cents per dozen. The highest
retail quotation at any time and
place during the year was 75 cents
and the lowest price was 20 cents per
The latest census reports show that
there are 2,946,414 fowls in this State
and about three-foarths of them are
egg producers. The annual production
