The poultry industry in Arkansas has come a long way. In the last few years, Ritter pointed out. Modern hatcheries that practically run themselves automatically, and labor-saving devices, such as automatic feeders, waterers, and brooders, enabl one man to care for 10,000 or more laying hens and 40,000 broilers a one time. Breeding, nutrition anc management have combined t make chickens and turkeys fa better meat birds and egg producers than their ancestors of only 15 years ago. The Poultry and Egg Nationa Board, the consumer education and promotional agency of the national poultry industry, is supported on a voluntary basis b; hatcheries, producers, b r o i 1 e growers, feed dealers, and others Ritter said the annual campaign has just started, with Arkansas quota set at £2,000. The nationa quota for the hatchery-producei group is 575,000. The Nationa Board's financial goal to be raised in 1852, from all industry groups is $250,000. Fewer Chickens Placed During Past Week Hatcheries and dealers placed 1,101,000 broiler chicks with producers in Northwest Arkansas last week. This was a decrease of six per cent from the previous -week, according to the federal-state Crop Reporting Service in Little Hock. Of the total placements, 859,000 chicks were hatched in the area and 242,000 came from other states. There were' also 185,000 chicks shipped out of the area. Eggs .set during the week were up one per cent over the previous week. ertlM In the TIMES--It c»y». 41 E.
