Turkey raising has become big business. During the period 1942 to 1946, the average annual return in Utah amounted to about nine and one half million dollars (4). This amount would have been increased considerably if the death loss among poults had been lower. As an example, using the percentages of mortality given by Miner (9, P. 5), it is estimated that the death-loss of turkeys in 1944 resulted in a loss of gross income by the farmers of Utah of more than four million dollars provided that the price the farmer received had remained the same.
