Weber listed four alternatives
possible in an Egg Marketing

include production allotments,

removal and quality control.
Allotments received the primary
attention at the meeting.
Options here include quotas on
the number of eggs marketed or
the number of hens. While
reservations were expressed quite
openly about allotments, the hen
quotas were thought to be more
Exemptions from quotas would

An assessment escalation clause
of one-tenth of a cent to cover in
flation would be built in, but the
total assessment could not exceed
one and one-half cents per dozen.
Surplus Removal
Producers would be assessed to
provide a kitty for product surplus
removal, if it becomes necessary.
Possible assessment would be
one-quarter cent per dozen to yield
some $ll million a year. Surplus
would be removed from the
market either by subsidizing ex
ports of eggs from the fund or
paying incentives to producers to
remove hens early.
It is thought this system could
work occasionally in emergency
situations but overuse would make
it ineffective by depleting the fund.
