Broiler Prices Are Target of Poultrymen FAYBTTEVItiLE — Plagued by lo* broiler prices in recent weeks. • erotip of northwest^Arkansas fee<i dealers and hatche.rymen have decided to do something about it, O. R. Hale, mnnacer of the -IX Feed Store here, snid that a group of M leading poultry »nd feed firms rn the area had endorsed a pro- .jram designed to curtail production and bolster broiler prices. The hatcheries which supply the baby chicks and the dealers who supply feed to producers will ask them In the future to house not more than one bird per souare fooi of floor .space. Hale said. Since the pre5ent practice ranges all the way from one-half to three-fourths square foot per hirri this would result in decreasing total production In tlie area by 25 to 30 per cent. In addition, poult-ry experts recommend the one-fool-per-bird housing as a means of Increnstne feet! efficiency anri producing better quality chickens, "Wn all recoRiii/e that the present crisis In the broiler Industry is Iho result of over-production." Hale declared. "Until such time as jwo- nle bes-ln to e»t more chicken, it is foolish for us t-o continue to produce broilers at a loss." "At present," he continued. "10(1 pounds of live chickens bring the producer only about JIB. If production were cut by one-fourth across the board. I believe the 75 pounds remaining would bring a greater return at lower cost. It's just the old story of supply and demand." ! Hnlc .served as chairman (it thr Broup which met here recently lo dlpcuss the problem of surplus pro- . ductlon and low prices.
