A lost season could rock the chicken industry

We already know that a season lost to an NFL lockout would cost most players millions, most owners tens of millions and most television networks hundreds of millions (possibly).

How about the chicken industry?

“It will be a major blow,” Joe Sanderson Jr, CEO of Sanderson Farms, told ABC News. "If we don't have Sunday football, the demand will go down tremendously, and of course, if that happens, the price will go down."

Richard Lobb, spokesman for the National Council of Chicken, explained that “with the wholesale price of chicken wings going for about $1 a pound, it could cost the industry as much as $10 million a week.”

PETA will be pleased. But those who live in the sane world . . . well, when you think about it, they probably won’t care either way.

A Lost Season Could Make Costs More Reasonable

I can remember the days when chicken wings were thrown out with the guts, feet and feathers.  I can also remember when they used to be 10 cents per wing.  Now, a pound of wings will cost you between $12 and $14, generally.  At the wholesale price of $1 per pound, it is almost pure profit for those selling them, so maybe this 'major blow' will result in us consumers getting a break for a while.
