The 12 years since the original edition of Storey'™s Guide to Raising Turkeys was published, the backyard poultry movement has undergone a revolution. Fueled by locavore activism, there'™s been a surge in small-scale poultry farming in response to consumer demand for the best flavors, new organic standards, the lifting of local ordinances, and a deep enthusiasm for heritage breeds. Turkeys are at the center of this revolution. Don Schrider'™s all-new edition of Storey'™s Guide to Raising Turkeys includes detailed information on everything today'™s turkey farmer needs to know: the characteristics of various heritage breeds, humane raising practices, pastured feeding methods, organic certification standards, on-farm processing guidelines, backyard raising techniques, and the most up-to-date medical and care procedures. The book also provides a six-month timetable and guidelines for the backyard farmer raising turkey poults for the Thanksgiving table. Marketing information, profiles of turkey farmers, and detailed illustrations complete this comprehensive reference book. This important new edition is a highly valuable addition to Storey'™s best-selling series. With nearly 2 million copies in print, the Storey'™s Guide to Raising series is the most trusted source of essential animal husbandry information. Now, the next generation of turkey farmers has all the information required to raise birds ' naturally and profitably!
