December egg production up on year


U.S. egg production was up in December, with numbers pointing towards short term growth in table egg supplies and tighter broiler chicken numbers.

The USDA says 9.54 billion eggs were produced during December 2023, up 3% from December 2022, including more than 8 billion market and table eggs and 1.3 billion hatching eggs.

From those hatching eggs, broiler type chicks were 849 million head, a decline of 1% on the year, with the number of chicks in incubators slightly below a year ago.
