Wisconsin egg production rises 7% from year before

by

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin made seven percent more eggs last year.

New figures show that Wisconsin hens put out 1.4 billion eggs during the year ending November 30th. That’s up from 1.3 billion the previous year.

Officials credit an increase in egg-laying hens. The Badger State had 6.5 percent more hens on the job in 2012, for a total of just under 5 million.

Each hen laid an average of 277 eggs, a couple more than the year before.

Wisconsin is 18th among the 50 states in total egg production. That’s unchanged from the previous year.

Neighboring Iowa is Number One by far. The Hawkeye State made 14.5 billion eggs in the most recent reporting year.
