Abstract

In 1948 the first Random Sample Egg Laying Test was established at Modesto, California, U.S.A., and since that time many such tests have been started throughout the world. These tests enable a far more accurate evaluation of laying stock to be made than was possible under the once popular Egg-Laying Trial method of testing, and as part of the Poultry Improvement Plan for Western Australia the Department of Agriculture inaugurated a Random Sample Laying Test at the Poultry Research Station, Herdsman Lake, in 1957
