Fall Turkey Harvest

2022 Turkey sale is quickly approaching and final plans are taking shape. Every fall the club harvest sell's' fresh dressed turkeys to the general public as our club's main fundraiser. The Poultry Science Club plans to manage the sale in the same manner as we did in 2021. We have heard our customers and have started our birds later this year to bring down the average bird weights. We are targeting birds for the 16-19 pound range this year. The sale itself will be similar to last year in that we will take pre-orders and pick up will ONLY on Sunday November 20, 2022. There will be an electronic on-line form to complete to start the pre-order process. We hope to have the form go live at 12:00 NOON on October 14th, 2022. You will receive a confirmation of your order within 48 hours.
