Turkey on the Rebound

Turkey on the Rebound

June 14, 2016

Turkey production across the United States has rebounded following last year's outbreak of highly pathogenic avian influenza. The USDA estimates nationwide production will be about 5.9 billion pounds in 2016. For Minnesota, the nation's largest turkey producer, production is back in full swing. 

"The livestock industry in Minnesota is an amazing powerhouse of economic drivers," said Tim Slunecka, the Minnesota Soybeans Executive Director. The turkey production in Minnesota effects many other agriculture industries in the state. 

The industry tackled this problem with increased biosecurity and by taking quick action. They have also made their standards stricter on and off the farm.

If you're a turkey producer or just a turkey consumer, we want to remind you, National Turkey Lover's Day is June 19th.
