Abstract

The objectives of this research were to determine the level of producer support for an egg marketing order and obtain information on the preferred structure of a marketing order. A national mail survey was used to gather information on producer attitudes. A majority of respondents felt national action would lead to higher egg prices and should include both control on the number of shell eggs entering the fresh market and a promotion, research, and consumer education program. Responses were analyzed on the basis of flock size, regional location, and flock size change over the last three years.
