This study is an appraisal of the degree of availability, adequacy and reliability of local price quotations reported by newspapers and radio stations. The advantages and limitations, and costs and benefits of an independent agency reporting local prices and market conditions in South Dakota are also discussed.
In order to gain practical experience and to discover some of the problems to be encountered in collecting and disseminating poultry prices, the South Dakota State College issued a Weekly Turkey Report during the turkey marketing season of 1951. Partly as a result of this study, the South Dakota Department of Agriculture began to issue semi-weekly poultry and egg market information reports on local markets in the fall of 1952.
