  In recent months, the prices of eggs nationwide have hit record highs frequently. After the Mid-Autumn Festival, despite the slowdown of the rising trend, the egg prices are still much higher compared with the same period of last year. The insiders believed that multiple factors such as infectious diseases and changes in farming structure have combined to lead to the record highs of egg prices.

  According to the monitoring of the national price information system for agricultural products and agricultural means of production of Xinhua News Agency, from March to August this year, the egg prices nationwide maintained the upward momentum. In August, the domestic average price of eggs was RMB 6.04 / 500 g, an increase of nearly 25% from RMB 4.85 / 500 g in March.

  Since early September, the domestic average price of eggs has stabilized in general, but it remains at a high level with significant increases compared with August. Xinhua News Agency monitoring data show that the domestic average price of eggs stood at RMB 6.28 / 500 g on September 2, reached RMB 6.33 / 500 g around the Mid-Autumn Festival, and has fluctuated between RMB 6.27 and 6.32 / 500 g since the 12th.

  As the prices of agricultural products are determined by the market, the price volatility is inevitable. However, this year's egg price volatility is higher than in previous years, and the insiders believe that it has been caused by a combination of multiple factors.

  The high egg prices are closely related to the outbreak of poultry infectious diseases early this year. Wang Yongsheng said that this spring, a large number of laying hens nurtured by Quanken Cooperative were infected and eliminated, and only after April did the cooperative begin to breed 200,000 new hens, nearly 100,000 hens less than before. In recent months, when the hens should lay eggs in large numbers, the insufficient supplies have continuously pushed up the prices.

  In addition, festivals and important events have also stimulated the rise in egg prices. In Nanjing as an example, August saw the Youth Olympic Games, the Mid-Autumn Festival, the new semester of universities and the beginning of the construction sites, etc. As a result, the demand for food surged, leading to the prices increases of many foods, and the especially short supply intensified the response of the egg prices.
