The objectives of this study were to determine for the North Central States, (1) the volume of broilers shipped in from competing poultry producing regions, (2) the types of transportation used, (3) transportation charges, (4) time in transit of the shipments, (5) seasonal factors, (6) the form in which broilers were received, (7) type of outlets through which the broilers were sold, and (8) the commodities carried on the outbound movement. The analysis concerns the movement of broilers from three regions-the Southeastern States, the South Central States, and the Del-Mar-Va area. The study covers the years 1957-58.
