Eggs have been in the news with the massive recalls from two Iowa producers. South Carolina’s egg production ranked 17th largest in the country last year. And the state’s turkey production ranked eighth. The poultry industry contributed more than 25 percent of the state’s total agricultural exporting income. Palmetto poultry exports grew by 87 percent between 2005 and 2009, reaching $145.8 million last year.
