Badger, Minnesota turkey producer John Burkel says it’s been a pretty solid year. “We’ve had drastic reductions in turkey production the last few years with higher feeds prices and fuel costs. We’re at the lowest turkey production since about 1986.” Burkel says wholesale turkey prices are currently record-high, but consumers will never pay more than cost, and in most cases, well below cost for their turkeys at Thanksgiving. Now that corn prices have come down, Burkel says there are signs of expansion in the turkey industry. “We’re starting to see some increases in egg sets and pullets placed.”
