He wa*aw- - • Will Harris This code is under the jurisdiction of the AAA (Agricultural Adjusmcnt Administration) and is one of the first Agricultural codes to be signed by Secretary Wallace. It is the first code to be given to any branch of the poultry industry. The code provides a uniform wage scale for all hatchery employees; fixes a definite egg size for hatching eggs: prohibits its hatcheries from selling baby chicks, started chicks, or doing custom hatching below the "cost of production"; outlaws untruthful and false advertising; and guarantees farmers a premium for hatching eggs that Is commensurate with the extra effort that they are required to give their hatchery flocks. Every hatchery in tlie United States is under the code since Janaury 2. pnd subject to all Its provisions. The code defines a hatchery as "anyone who hatches chicks for other purposes than his own." Means Bigger Eggs The most sweeping nnd far-reaching change Is probably the section of the code which provides that hatcheries cannot Incubate eggs which average less than 23 ounces to the dozen. This also includes all custom hatching that is brought to any hatchery- The Federal Department of Agriculture feels that this will definitely tend to increase the egg size in poultry from year to year. Hatcheries, who violate the code, will be subject to a $500.00 fine per day for every day that they have violated the code in the future. The Iowa Poultry Improvement Association, which is the state trade organization for Iowa hatcherymen and poultry breeders, will hold a series of meetings in each of the ten Iowa hatchery districts starting January 8. These meetings will acquaint hatch- erymen with the Interpretations of various sections of the code and instruct them how to operate their plants according to the new law. Holding District Meetings V. C. Ramseycr of Oskaloosa, who is Secretary of the Improvement Association, and who is also a member of the national Code Compliance Committee | of Five, will be in charge of this series of district meetings. He will outline to hatcherymen how the code Is to be followed aa it was explained by NRA and AAA officials before a meeting of the Committee of Five in Chicago on Jan. 3rd. Prof. W. R. Whitfield of Iowa State College Extension Service, who has made an extensive study for the past year of hatchery production costs, will instruct hatcherymen how to determine production costs so as to adhere to the code requirements.
