Turkey Census

May 24, 2006

The American Livestock Breeds Conservancy continues to follow the breeding population trends of heritage turkeys. Conversations with hatcheries and the large producers show good growth over the past several years. ALBC would like to get a more comprehensive understanding of who is breeding turkeys, and the breeder bird numbers of each variety. This survey allows ALBC to learn which populations are thriving, and which are in need of additional attention. Confidential information that you provide in the survey will be protected. The final report will identify and provide contact information for those who breed and sell stock.

Please download and print the Turkey Census form (WORD) (PDF), fill it out, and mail it or fax it to me:

Conservation success depends on people like you, and I am personally honored to work with you. Thank you for participating in this year's turkey census.

Yours sincerely,
