It's time to talk turkey

Adlington Turkeys_20186

Each year the NFU organises a series of turkey marketing meetings aimed at seasonal turkey producers. There are nine meetings in total, which take place across the country during September and early October and are free to attend.

As well as a chance to network and speak to other producers the meetings are designed to provide updates on the feed market, poult quality, turkey market and cost of production. A producer speaker is usually the highlight of the agenda as it’s an ideal opportunity to hear how somebody else runs their own business.

Most of the meetings start at 7.30pm and a buffet style meal is served for those in attendance.

The NFU is grateful to the meeting sponsors for their contributions which enable the meetings to take place.

The dates and venues for the meetings can be found below alongside the contact details for booking your place.
