Poultry Remains No. 1 for 19th Straight Year, says Mississippi State University
Poultry can’t be beat in Mississippi, according to Mississippi State University’s new report on agricultural production. For the 19th straight year, chicken held the highest value, thanks to prime conditions in 2013 and an increased demand. The weather cooperated and producer costs dropped, both of which led to a steady year in poultry sales. “As beef and pork producers face challenges that will likely decrease production,” it seems that 2014 is set to follow as another year in favor of the poultry industry.
