Poultry production includes more than just one species. Each one of them has its own characteristics, so production for each species is conducted differently. There are many differences between turkeys and chickens when it comes to nutrition, general management, facilities, and behavior, so the more you know about the particularities, the more effective your production will be. In this episode, Dr. Sally Noll and I discuss turkey production specificities and needs, as well as recent research on the subject. We also talk about some challenges related to nutrition and biosecurity, as well as ways it can be improved.
