"For fiscal 2008, our results reflect very good egg prices, record high feed costs and a solid performance by the Cal-Maine management team," said Fred Adams Jr., chairman and CEO. "As we look ahead, we see continued strong demand for eggs, a slightly higher, but manageable, egg supply, and further volatility with respect to corn and soybean meal prices. All of our operations are running smoothly and we are optimistic about Cal-Maine's business for the year ahead."
