Traditional outlets for South Dakota eggs, outside the Midwest, are being offered greater supplies of quality eggs by nearby producers than before. As a result. South Dakota has lost much of its Eastern market and may lose its Western market. A number of cooperative associations have expressed an interest in developing more efficient egg marketing systems. Improved cooperative marketing would create increased bargaining power and higher net returns for many producers. Cooperatives have played an important function in South Dakota egg marketing for many years. Cooperatives in other parts of the country have formed federations to increase cooperative egg marketing efficiency.
