Updated August 2021 USDA Projection for U.S. Egg Production

09/16/2021

The USDA Economic Research Service issued an updated forecast of egg production on September 16th 2021 revising the previous August 18th 2021 report. The September projection of production for 2021 was increased by 0.2 percent from 2020 to 8,073 million dozen with a per capita consumption of shell eggs and liquids combined of 284.1 down 1.4 percent compared to 2020. The average 2021 benchmark New York bulk unit price was raised to 117.8 cents per dozen taking into account higher prices during the first quarter and in August. The USDA provided a long-term forecast for 2022 of 8,175 million dozen produced, with a consumption of 287.4 per capita. Subsequent USDA forecasts will provide greater clarity on reopening of the economy that is still depressed with moderate unemployment attributed to COVID restrictions.
