This article reports on the production of various poultry products. Broiler production in the first quarter of 2006 is estimated at 8.9 billion pounds, up 3.6% from the previous year. Expected increases in both the number of birds slaughtered and the average live weight of birds are behind the increase. Total meat production in 2006 is expected to increase 3.3% from last year. Demand for processing beef remains good but at prices below the very strong prices of 2005.
