Belwood Poultry withdraws appeal

Belwood Poultry Ltd. has withdrawn its appeal against the Turkey Farmers of Ontario marketing board.

No reason has been revealed for either the appeal or its withdrawal.

It is the second time the appeal has been shelved. Earlier this year it was put on hold.

Belwood Poultry is a processing plant at Amherstburg, near Windsor, and is associated with Belwood Poultry Farms Ltd. which raises turkeys.

It is owned by one of two separate Schlegel families which each own turkey farms and nursing homes in different parts of the province.

There are no business connections between the two Schlegel families.
