Significant events impacting this study series

The survey commenced in September 1980. In 1987, this survey gained user-funding assistance and its future is now reviewed every year. In 1997, the questionnaire changed at the sponsors request. Roasting Fowl (end of lay) was split into Meat Breeders (end of lay) and End of Lay (not meat breeders). This was done to give more information regarding end of lay breeds which are different in regard to breeds, size and end use. Meat breeders (2kg) are typically boned out producing good quality filleted meat, whilst the bony tough carcass of the end of lay hens (<1kg) are sold cheaply as roasting or boiling fowls. The first survey to incorporate this change was the June 1997 quarter.
