Poultry and Egg Association Says if You Want a Turkey, Buy Early

Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and that means the demand for turkeys is going up.

According to the University of Illinois, Americans eat around 46 million turkeys each year on the holiday.

With supply chain and labor issues caused by the coronavirus affected a variety of industries from construction to farming, what is the condition of Alabama’s turkey supply?

Johnny Adams is the CEO of the Alabama Poultry and Egg Association. Adams said that despite supply-chain issues, Alabama’s turkey supply is in good shape.

“All industry is affected and challenged by the current labor and transportation issues. We’ve been conducting some surveys here locally. We have not found a shortage. We have found an ample supply of Turkey,” Adams said.

Still, Adams said that if you want to make sure that you’ve got a turkey, you’d better buy early.

Video: Sheep Farming: Leaving The Farm, Even For Just A Day, Requires A Lot Of Preparations/Sept. 24, 2022

At Ewetopia Farms, we spent the day getting prepared for leaving the farm to go to another sheep show tomorrow. We need to leave very early in the morning so we wanted to make sure most of our jobs got done today instead. When you have a farm and animals, you can't just randomly leave for a day - especially when it is also lambing season! You need to make sure everything is prepared so that nothing can go wrong with the animals while you are away. We have hired Corey to do a midday barn check.
