USDA-AMS Egg Purchases FY2020


For the recently completed 2020 fiscal year, the USDA purchased 24.6 million dozen eggs and 55.2 million pounds of egg products.  For shell eggs, 17 percent were purchased under Section 32, with 63.7 percent for trade mitigation and 13.6 percent for COVID relief.  The average unit price of AMS purchases was $0.98 per dozen.  The average price for egg products comprising 95% frozen whole eggs was $1.31 per pound.


By comparison in FY2019 AMS purchased 5.7 million dozen shell eggs and 27.1 million pounds of egg products valued collectively at $34.9 million or slightly less than half the expenditure in FY2020.
