This fact sheet is constructed to be used by 4-H and FFA youth for training or as a tool to aid in the growing of market turkeys for the Utah Junior Turkey Show or for local turkey shows. The basics of the Utah Turkey Show are fairly simple. Poults (day old turkeys) are ordered from your 4-H agent or FFA advisor usually by mid May of the current year. Your order is then placed by them and your poults are received by everyone in the show on the same day. Everyone receives the same breed of poult, the same age of poult, from the same source so that everyone starts on an even playing field. What you do with your poults from here on will depend upon you.
