We are unable to determine exactly where Iowa belongs in the broiler production rankings for two reasons. One, Iowa's data are not published to "avoid disclosure of confidential information about individual producers" and, two, Iowa is not ranked in any of the Economic Research Service's available data sets. We do know that Iowa is not among the top 25. This means that Iowa ranks on the low end, somewhere among Nebraska, New York, and Hawai`i.

The numbers listed for "Value ($1,000)" represent the value of the product or commodity in thousands of dollars. For example, the number 450,000 is equal to $450,000,000.

Note: Data are not collected by the Economic Research Service in surveys for some minor commodities and for some minor producing states for commodities that are surveyed. This is why percentages do not always add up to 100% and all states that produce a product may not be listed.
