Production of turkeys in Utah has had a rapid growth since its beginning a few decades ago. In 1929 there were only 226,000 birds sold by Utah producers and in 1960 there were 2,798,000 birds sold. Over this 31 year period of time production has increased 12 times.
Gross income received in 1960 for Utah turkeys amounted to $13,787,000 and accounted for 8.35 percent of total farm income in Utah in 1960 (2).
In addition to the income direct to turkey producers, this industry contributes to the incomes of various other industries such as processors, feed handlers, hatcheries, transportation agencies, and financing agencies.
