Mrs. Walter MARYLAND POULTRY INCOME SECOND AMONG FARM PRODUCTS With an annual income of approximately $15,000,000, or about 20 per cent of the total agricultural income, Maryland's poultry industry is exceeded only by the dairy industry in value of its products, Dr. Thomas B. Symons, dean and director of the University of Maryland extension service, told the group attending the Poultry Products Marketing School, which was held at the University on September 14 to 17. He stated that 02 per cent of all farms in the State raise poultry, either as a specialized or supplemental enterprise. Dr. Symons outlined the activities that are being carried on by the extension service, in cooperation with the poultry organizations of the state, with a view to improving the poultry industry. According to Wade H. Rice, extension poultry specialist, 21 hatcheries qualified in 1037 in pul- lorum testing and breed improvement work under the State and National Poultry Improvement plan, he declared, and this work involved more than 250,000 birds. Surveys by the department of agricultural economics, he stated, showed 4 per cent lower, mortality and 2 cents lower cobt for chicks, and higher egg production per pullet, when chicks were pur- qhascd from local breeders in this work in comparison with distant sources. Results of a farm egg record project conducted during the last eight years show 74 farms, averaging 311 birds each, producing 150 eggs per bird, with a mortality of 17.G per cent. The average production per bird in Maryland is about 80 eggs, and the mortality is .nearly 20 per cent per year. Dr. Symonis described the efforts that are being made to improve the quality of eggs marketed, and also the market for poultry products of the State. He quoted Stewart B. Shaw, chief of the Maryland State Department of Markets, to the effect that 1,830,183 dozens of eggs were inspected in 1037, and the inspected eggs were distributed through a number of large private agencies and federal agencies. Special efforts to improve turkey production and poultry work with 4-H Club members were other phases of the poultry extension program described.
