The production of broilers in Utah has become increasingly important in the last few years. Data are not available prior to 1950 but in that year the gross income from the production of broilers was $629,000. In 1951 almost one and a half million broilers were produced bringing a gross income of $1,322,000 to Utah producers.

With the rapid growth in recent years has come a demand for information about this new industry from producers, prospective producers, processors of meat and feed, agricultural leaders, and agricultural advisers. As with most new industries little specific information has been available concerning the economics of production and no printed information has been available for Utah conditions.
