    Before the opening bell on Thursday, poultry processor Sanderson Farms, Inc.

"The results for our second quarter of fiscal 2013 reflect improved market conditions driven primarily by an overall increase in demand for poultry products. Our net sales were 4.4 percent higher compared with the second quarter of fiscal 2012, reflecting higher average sales prices of chicken," CEO Joe Sanderson, Jr. said in a statement. "Looking ahead, we are reasonably optimistic as we head into the summer months and what is typically a period of better demand for chicken. While grain costs remain above historical levels, demand for chicken products is strong," Sanderson added. Sanderson Farms shares were up $2.01, or +3.05%, during pre-market trading on Thursday.
