Improved supply, demand support higher wholesale egg prices

Relatively tight supplies expected to put upward pressure on prices in coming months.

After six months of depressed prices, the U.S. Department of Agriculture reported in the latest “Livestock, Dairy & Poultry Outlook” that wholesale egg prices (New York, Grade A large) climbed 61 cents during August -- from 57 cents/doz. to $1.18/doz. Prices averaged 92.9 cents/doz. for the month, which USDA said was an increase of nearly 49% from July but still almost 22% below August 2018.
