Turkey stocks too high

Turkey stocks remain too high, say the directors of the Turkey Farmers of Canada national supply management agency.

But the Western provinces are opposed to an across-the-board production cut.

They say the stocks issue is only in Ontario and Quebec, not in their region of the nation.

As a result, they voted down proposals to reduce production across the board.

And then the directors decided it’s time to undertake a review of how they determine how many turkeys to produce. It’s been 10 years since that issue has been reviewed.
