Since 1929 the Department of Agricultural Economics of the Utah Agricultural Experiment Station and the Divisions of Farm Management and Costs and of Cooperative Marketing of the Bureau of Agricultural Economics of the United States Department of Agriculture have been cooperating in conducting a study of the economic factors affecting the production and marketing of poultry products in Utah. Under the arrangement, as entered into by these three groups, the Agricultural Economics Department of the Experiment Station and the Division of Farm Management and Costs of the Bureau of Agricultural Economics agreed to study the trends in production, feed supply, poultry management, cost of production, price factors , and relationship of the poultry enterprise to the farm business as a whole. The Division of Cooperative Marketing agreed to make a business analysis study of the Utah Poultry Producers Cooperative Association. This bulletin contains the results secured, giving an analysis of the factors affecting the production of poultry products and certain phases of marketing as they relate to production. Two preliminary reports/ giving the results of this study, have been published by the Utah Station as Miscellaneous Publications 8 and 9. A later bulletin, entitled "Business Analysis of the Utah Poultry Producers Cooperative Association," will contain a more specific analysis of the marketing of these products.
