           ITEM 2. MANAGEMENTS'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL
                       CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

OVERVIEW

     The Company is primarily engaged in the production, cleaning, grading,
packing, and sale of fresh shell eggs. The Company's fiscal year end is the
Saturday nearest to May 31.

     The Company's operations are fully integrated. It owns facilities to hatch
chicks, grow pullets, manufacture feed, and produce, process, and distribute
shell eggs. The Company currently is the largest producer and distributor of
fresh shell eggs in the United States. The shell egg segment sales, including
feed sales to outside egg producers, accounted for 98% of the Company's net
sales. The Company primarily markets its shell eggs in the southwestern,
southeastern, mid-western and mid-Atlantic regions of the United States. Shell
eggs are sold directly by the Company primarily to national and regional
supermarket chains.

     The Company currently uses contract producers for approximately 15% of its
total egg production. Contract producers operate under agreements with the
Company for the use of their facilities in the production of shell eggs by
layers owned by the Company, which owns the eggs produced. Also, shell eggs are
purchased, as needed, from outside producers for resale by the Company.

     The Company's operating income or loss is significantly affected by
wholesale shell egg market prices, which can fluctuate widely and are outside of
the Company's control. Retail sales of shell eggs are greatest during the fall
and winter months and lowest during the summer months. Prices for shell eggs
fluctuate in response to seasonal factors and a natural increase in egg
production during the spring and early summer.

     The Company's cost of production is materially affected by feed costs,
which average about 56% of Cal-Maine's total farm egg production cost for the
current and prior year. Changes in feed costs result in changes in the Company's
cost of goods sold. The cost of feed ingredients is affected by a number of
supply and demand factors such as crop production and weather, and other
factors, such as the level of grain exports, over which the Company has little
or no control.

     According to U.S. Department of Agriculture reports, during calendar year
2002, the chick hatch was lower than in the same twelve-month period in 2001,
resulting in lower projected hen numbers for 2003. The same data for January and
February 2003 shows the chick hatch below January and February 2002. This could
result in decreased egg production and upward pressure on egg prices. Egg demand
is very good for domestic use. Export opportunities for 2003 are uncertain at
this time. Although the fall 2002 grain crop was adequate, current grain
commodities futures trading levels indicate that the cost of feed ingredients
may be at higher price levels during 2003.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

     The following table sets forth, for the periods indicated, certain items
from the Company's Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations expressed as

                                       7


     NET SALES

     Net sales for the third quarter of fiscal 2003 were $106.8 million, an
increase of $19.9 million, or 22.9% as compared to net sales of $86.9 million
for the third quarter of fiscal 2002. Total dozens of eggs sold increased in the
current quarter and egg selling prices increased as compared with prices last
year. Dozens sold for the current quarter were 146.7 million dozen, an increase
of 3.3 million dozen, or 2.3% as compared to the third quarter of last year.
Consumer demand was good and egg supply was in balance, helped by a sizeable,
one time, export order to Europe by the U.S. egg industry. These market factors
resulted in higher egg selling prices during the current quarter. The Company's
net average selling price per dozen for the fiscal 2003 third quarter was $.693,
compared to $.576 for the third quarter of last year, an increase of 20.3%.

     Net sales for the thirty-nine weeks ended March 1, 2003 were $284.0
million, an increase of $40.9 million, or 16.8%, as compared to net sales of
$243.1 million for last year. As in the current quarter, total dozens sold
increased and net egg selling prices increased. Dozens sold for the current 39
week period were 427.7 million as compared to 420.1 million for the same period
in last fiscal year, an increase of 1.8%. For the current 39 week period, the
Company's net average selling price per dozen was $.631, compared to $.547 per
dozen last year, an increase of 15.4%.

     COST OF SALES

     Cost of sales for the third quarter ended March 1, 2003 was $82.0 million,
an increase of $7.1 million, or 9.5%, as compared to cost of sales of $74.9
million for last year's third quarter. The increase is due to higher cost of
purchases from outside egg producers and higher cost of feed ingredients, offset
by the Company's $4.1 million recovery share of a class action feed ingredient
lawsuit. Settlement discussions are ongoing with other ingredient suppliers and
management believes that additional settlements, of an indeterminate amount, are
likely during the remainder of fiscal 2003. Dozens of eggs sold increased 2.3%.
These additional dozens were the net result of an increase in dozens produced in
Company facilities and small decrease in the number of dozens purchased from
outside egg producers. The increase in the cost of the eggs purchased from
outside producers was due to stronger egg market conditions. Feed cost for the
third quarter ended March 1, 2003 was $.218 per dozen, compared to last fiscal
year's cost per dozen of $.193, an increase of 13.0%. The higher egg selling
prices resulted in an increase in gross profit from 13.8% of net sales for the
quarter ended March 2, 2002 to 23.2% of net sales for the current quarter ended
March 1, 2003.

     For the thirty-nine week period ended March 1, 2003, cost of sales was
$233.8 million, an increase of $14.8 million, or 6.8%, as compared to cost of
sales of $219.0 million for last year. As in the quarter, the increase in cost
of sales is the result of higher outside egg purchase cost and an increase in
the cost of feed, offset by the Company's $7.0 million recovery share, for the
39 week period, of the class action feed ingredient lawsuit. Feed cost for the
current 39 weeks was $.211 per dozen, compared to $.195 per dozen last year, an
increase of 8.2%. The increase in egg selling prices resulted in an increase in
gross profit from 10.0% of net sales for the prior year 39 week period to 17.7%
for the current 39 week period.

     SELLING, GENERAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE EXPENSES

     Selling, general and administrative expenses for the third quarter ended
March 1, 2003 were $11.6 million, an increase of $1.1 million, or 10.5%, as
compared to $10.5 million for last fiscal year's third quarter. The increase is
due to an increase in payroll and related expenses and increased delivery costs,
especially in costs of insurance and employee benefits. On a cost per dozen sold
basis, selling, general and administrative expenses increased $.005 per dozen,
or $.079 per dozen for the current quarter as compared to $.074 for the same
period in the prior year. As a percent of net sales, selling, general and
administrative expenses decreased from 12.1% for the fiscal 2002 third quarter
to 10.9% for the current quarter.

     For the thirty-nine weeks ended March 1, 2003, selling, general and
administrative expenses were $32.5 million, an increase of $1.5 million, or
4.8%, as compared to $31.0 million for the same period in the prior fiscal year.
As in the current quarter, the increased cost was related to increases in
payroll and related expenses, and increased delivery expenses. On a cost per
dozen sold basis, selling, general and administrative expenses increased
slightly, $.076 for the current year and $.074 for last fiscal year. As a
percent of net sales, selling, general and administrative expenses have
decreased from 12.8% for the prior 39 week period to 11.4% for the current 39
week period.

                                       8


     OPERATING INCOME

     As the result of the above, operating income was $13.2 million for the
third quarter ended March 1, 2003, as compared to operating income of $1.5
million for last year's fiscal third quarter. Operating income was 12.3% of net
sales for the current fiscal quarter, compared to operating income of 1.7% of
net sales for the same quarter in the prior year.

     For the thirty-nine weeks ended March 1, 2003, operating income was $17.8
million, compared to operating loss of $6.9 million for last fiscal year.
Operating income was 6.3% of net sales for the current 39 week period compared
to operating loss of 2.8% of net sales in the same period in the prior year.

     OTHER EXPENSE

     Other expense for the third quarter ended March 1, 2003 was $1.2 million,
an decrease of $1.1, as compared to the third quarter of last fiscal year. In
the current quarter, net interest expense decreased $284,000 and other income
increased $813,000. Net interest expense decreased as the result of lower
interest rates and capitalized interest on construction projects. Other income
for the current quarter increased from equity in income of affiliates. As a
percent of net sales, other expense was 1.1% for the current third quarter,
compared to 2.7% for the same period in the prior year.

     For the thirty-nine weeks ended March 1, 2003, other expense was $5.4
million, a decrease of $1.3 million, or 19.4%, as compared to $6.7 million for
the same period in the prior year. For the current period, net interest expense
decreased $264,000 and other income increased $1.0 million. Net interest expense
decreased due to lower interest rates. The increase in other income is due to an
increased of $1.1 million from equity in income of affiliates. As a percent of
net sales, other expense was 1.9% for the current period, as compared to 2.7%
for the same period in the prior year.

     INCOME TAXES

     As a result of the above, the Company's pre-tax income was $11.9 million
for the quarter ended March 1, 2003, compared to pre-tax loss of $861,000 for
last year's quarter. For the current quarter, an income tax expense of $4.3
million was recorded with an effective tax rate of 36.3%, as compared to an
income tax benefit of $310,000 with an effective rate of 36.0% for last year's
comparable quarter.

     For the thirty-nine week period ended March 1, 2003, the Company's pre-tax
income was $12.4 million, compared to pre-tax loss of $13.6 million for last
year. For the current thirty-nine week period, an income tax expense of $4.5
million was recorded with an effective tax rate of 36.3%, as compared to an
income tax benefit of $4.8 million with an effective rate of 35.7% for last
year's comparable period.

     NET INCOME (LOSS)

     Net income for the third quarter ended March 1, 2003 was $7.6 million, or
$.65 per basic share, $.64 per diluted share, compared to net loss of $551,000,
or $.05 per basic and diluted share, for last fiscal year's third quarter.

     For the thirty-nine week period ended March 1, 2003, net income was $7.9
million, or $.67 per basic and diluted share, compared to last fiscal year's net
loss of $8.7 million, or $.74 per basic and diluted share.

                                       9


     CAPITAL RESOURCES AND LIQUIDITY

     The Company's working capital at March 1, 2003 was $23.0 million, compared
to $17.3 million at June 1, 2002. The Company's current ratio was 1.38 at March
1, 2003, as compared with 1.30 at June 1, 2002. The Company's need for working
capital generally is highest in the first and second fiscal quarters ending in
August and November. During the first quarter egg prices are normally at
seasonal lows. In the second quarter, the Company usually builds inventories and
receivable balances in anticipation of the holiday season. Seasonal borrowing
needs frequently are higher during these periods than during other fiscal
periods. The Company had a $35 million line of credit with three banks of which
$8.5 million was outstanding at March 1, 2003. The Company's long-term debt at
that date, including current maturities, totaled $110.3 million, as compared to
$118.4 million at June 1, 2002.

     For the thirty-nine weeks ended March 1, 2003, $14.5 million in net cash
was provided by operating activities. This compares to $5.7 million that was
used in operating activities for the comparable period last fiscal year. In the
current thirty-nine week period, $3.8 million was used for purchases of
property, plant and equipment, $482,000 was received from sales of property,
plant and equipment, and $6.1 million was used for construction projects. Net
cash of $186,000 was provided by notes receivable and investments. Approximately
$440,000 was used for payments of dividends on the Company's common stock.
Proceeds of $1.5 million were received from net borrowings on notes payable to
banks. Payments of $8.1 million were made on long-term debt. The net result was
a decrease in cash of approximately $1.8 million.

     For the comparable period last year, $5.7 million was used for purchases of
property, plant and equipment, $977,000 was received from sales of property,
plant and equipment, and $6.7 million was used for construction projects. Net
cash of $212,000 was used for additions to investments and other assets and
payments of $161,000 were received on notes receivable and investments.
Approximately $571,000 was used for purchase of common stock for the treasury
and $444,000 was used for payments of dividends on the Company's common stock.
Proceeds of $8.0 million were received from net borrowings on notes payable to
banks and long-term borrowings of $9.0 million were received. Payments of $7.0
million were made on long-term debt. The net result was a decrease in cash of
approximately $8.3 million.

     Substantially all trade receivables and inventories collateralize the
Company's line of credit, and property, plant and equipment collateralize the
Company's long-term debt. The Company is required by certain provisions of these
loan agreements to (1) maintain minimum levels of working capital and net worth;
(2) limit dividends, capital expenditures, lease obligations and additional
long-term borrowings; and (3) maintain various current and cash-flow coverage
ratios, among other restrictions. At June 1, 2002, the Company did not meet
certain of these provisions on its long-term debt agreements and obtained
waivers of these requirements through fiscal 2003. At March 1, 2003, the Company
was not in compliance with a certain financial covenant requirement of a $16.0
million long-term debt agreement. The Company obtained a waiver of such
requirement. As of March 1, 2003, the Company is in compliance with the
provisions of all loan agreements as waived or amended. Under certain of the
loan agreements, the lenders have the option to require the prepayment of any
outstanding borrowings in the event of a change in the control of the Company.

     The Company has a net operating income tax loss carryforward to fiscal year
ending May 31, 2003 of approximately $14.0 million. Due to this, at March 1,
2003, there is not a current payable portion of estimated income taxes included
in current liabilities.

     In fiscal 2001, the Company began construction of a new shell egg
production and processing facility in Guthrie, Kentucky, with completion of the
facility expected in fiscal 2004. The total cost of the facility is
approximately $18.0 million, of which $12.1 million was incurred through March
1, 2003. The Company has commitments from an insurance company to receive $10.0
million in long-term borrowings and from a leasing company to receive $7.5
million applicable to the Guthrie facility. Including the construction project,
the Company has projected capital expenditures of $14.0 million in fiscal 2003,
which will be funded by cash flows from operations and additional long-term
borrowings.

Impact of Recently Issued Accounting Standards.

     In October 2001, the FASB issued Statement of Financial Accounting
Standards No. 144, "Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived
Assets" (SFAS No. 144). SFAS No. 144 supersedes Statement of Financial
Accounting Standards No. 121, "Accounting for the Impairment of Long-Lived
Assets and for Long-Lived Assets to Be Disposed of "(SFAS No. 121). However, it
retains the fundamental provisions of SFAS No. 121 related to the recognition
and measurement of the impairment of long-lived assets to be "held and used." In
addition, SFAS No. 144 provides more guidance on estimating cash flows when
performing a recoverability test, requires that a long-lived asset to be
disposed other than by sale (e.g., abandoned) be classified as "held and used"
until it is disposed of, and establishes more restrictive criteria to classify
an asset as "held for sale." The Company adopted SFAS No. 144 effective June 2,
2002. The adoption did not have an effect on the Company's consolidated results
of operations or financial position.

     Forward Looking Statements. The foregoing statements contain
forward-looking statements, which involve risks and uncertainties, and the
Company's actual experience may differ materially from that discussed above.
Factors that may cause such a difference include, but are not limited to, those
discussed in "Factors Affecting Future Performance" below, as well as future
events that have the effect of reducing the Company's available cash balances,
such as unanticipated operating losses or capital expenditures related to
possible future acquisitions. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance
on forward-looking statements, which reflect management's analysis only as the
date hereof. The Company assumes no obligation to update forward-looking
statements. See also the Company's other reports to be filed from time to time
with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to the Securities Exchange
Act of 1934.

     Factors Affecting Future Performance. The Company's future operating
results may be affected by various trends and factors beyond the Company's
control. These include adverse changes in shell egg prices and in the grain
markets. Accordingly, past trends should not be used to anticipate future
results and trends. Further, the Company's prior performance should not be
presumed to be an accurate indication of future performance.

     Critical Accounting Policies. The preparation of financial statements in
accordance with accounting standards generally accepted in the United States
requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported
amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and
the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period.
Actual results could differ from these estimates.

     Management suggests that the Company's Summary of Significant Accounting
Policies, as described in Note 1 of the Notes to Consolidated Financial
Statements included in Cal-Maine Foods, Inc. and Subsidiaries Annual Report on
Form10-K for the fiscal year ended June 1, 2002, be read in conjunction with
this Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of
Operations. The Company believes the critical accounting policies that most
impact the Company's consolidated financial statements are described below.

     Allowance for Doubtful Accounts. In the normal course of business, the
Company extends credit to its customers on a short-term basis. Although credit
risks associated with our customers are considered minimal, the Company
routinely reviews its accounts receivable balances and makes provisions for
probable doubtful accounts. In circumstances where management is aware of a
specific customer's inability to meet its financial obligations to the Company
(e.g. bankruptcy filings), a specific reserve is recorded to reduce the
receivable to the amount expected to be collected. For all other customers, the
Company recognizes reserves for bad debts based on the length of time the
receivables are past due, generally 100% for amounts more than 60 days past due.

     Inventories. Inventories of eggs, feed, supplies and livestock are valued
principally at the lower of cost (first-in, first-out method) or market. If
market prices for eggs and feed grains move substantially lower, the Company
would record adjustments to write-down the carrying values of eggs and feed
inventories to fair market value.

     The cost associated with flock inventories, consisting principally of chick
purchases, feed, labor, contractor payments and overhead costs, are accumulated
during the growing period of approximately 18 weeks. Capitalized flock costs are
then amortized over the productive lives of the flocks, generally one to two
years. Flock mortality is charged to cost of sales as incurred. High mortality
from disease or extreme temperatures would result in abnormal adjustments to
write-down flock inventories. Management continually monitors each flock and
attempts to take appropriate actions to minimize the risk of mortality loss.

                                       11


     Long-Lived Assets. Depreciable long-lived assets are primarily comprised of
buildings and improvements and machinery and equipment. Depreciation is provided
by the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives, which are 15 to 25
years for buildings and improvements and 3 to 12 years for machinery and
equipment. An increase or decrease in the estimated useful lives would result in
changes to depreciation expense.

     The Company continually reevaluates the carrying value of its long-lived
assets, for events or changes in circumstances, which indicate that the carrying
value may not be recoverable. As part of this reevaluation, the Company
estimates the future cash flows expected to result from the use of the asset and
its eventual disposal. If the sum of the expected future cash flows
(undiscounted and without interest charges) is less than the carrying amount of
the asset, an impairment loss is recognized to reduce the carrying value of the
long-lived asset to the estimated fair value of the asset.

     Investment in Affiliates. The Company has invested in other companies
engaged in the production, processing and distribution of shell eggs and egg
products. The Company's ownership percentages in these companies range from less
than 20% to 50%. Therefore, these investments are recorded using the cost or the
equity method, and accordingly, not consolidated in the Company's financial
statements. Changes in the ownership percentages of these investments might
alter the accounting methods currently used. The Company is a guarantor of
approximately $9 million of long-term debt of one of the affiliates.

     Goodwill. Goodwill primarily relates to the fiscal 1999 acquisition of
Hudson Brothers, Inc. Goodwill and indefinite lived intangible assets are no
longer amortized but are reviewed annually, or more frequently if impairment
indicators arise, for impairment. An impairment loss would be recorded if the
recorded goodwill exceeds its implied fair value.

      The Company has only one operating segment, which is its sole reporting
unit. Accordingly, goodwill is tested for impairment at the entity level.
Significant adverse industry or economic changes, or other factors not
anticipated could result in an impairment charge to reduce recorded goodwill.

     Income Taxes. The Company determines its effective tax rate by estimating
its permanent differences resulting from differing treatment of items for tax
and accounting purposes. The Company is periodically audited by taxing
authorities. Any audit adjustments affecting permanent differences could have an
impact on the Company's effective tax rate.


ITEM 3.  QUANTATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES OF MARKET RISK

     There have been no material changes in the market risk reported in Item 7A
of the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 1,
2002.


ITEM 4.  CONTROLS  AND  PROCEDURES

     The Company's Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer have
concluded that the Company's disclosure controls and procedures are effective
based on their evaluation of such controls and procedures as of a date within 90
days prior to the filing of this report. There were no significant changes in
internal controls or in other factors that significantly affect internal
controls subsequent to the date of their most recent evaluation.

                           PART II. OTHER INFORMATION


ITEM 1.  LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

     On December 26, 2002, Cal-Maine Farms, Inc.("Cal-Maine Farms"), a Delaware
corporation and a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, was served with
process in a civil complaint filed in the Circuit Court of the First Judicial
District of Hinds County, Mississippi, on behalf of four plaintiffs, Hunter
McWhorter, a minor, his two parents, and Michael Green, an adult. In addition to
Cal-Maine Farms, Fred Adams, Dolph Baker, Charlie Collins, R. K. Looper and B.
J. Raines, officers of the Company, are also named as defendants. Six other
named defendants include Cargill, Incorporated, George's Farms, Inc., Peterson
Farms, Inc., Simmons Foods, Inc., Simmons Poultry Farms, Inc., and Tyson Foods,
Inc., each of which is engaged in the broiler business. Additional individual
defendants with affiliations to the other corporate defendants were also named.

     The suit alleges the original plaintiffs have suffered medical problems
resulting from living near land upon which "litter" from the flocks of hens
owned by certain of the defendants was spread as fertilizer. The suit
specifically addresses conditions alleged to exist in Washington County,
Arkansas, where there is a relatively high concentration of broiler farms.
Cal-Maine Farms is not engaged in any broiler production and, compared to the
broiler producers, only has a very small portion of the hens located in
Washington County, Arkansas.

     The suit alleges actual damages in the amount of $55,000,000 and requests
punitive damages in the amount of $100,000,000. On December 31, 2002, an Amended
Complaint was filed, bringing the total number of plaintiffs to 93, of which 67
are alleged to be ill and three are deceased. The damages sought were not
amended.

     An answer has been filed on behalf of Cal-Maine Farms denying the
plaintiffs claim but no discovery has taken place. At this time, motions to
dismiss on behalf of certain defendants, including Cal-Maine Farms, are pending,
but not yet scheduled for hearing. At this stage, it is impossible to evaluate
the potential exposure, if any, of Cal-Maine Farms to damages in this suit.
