Each year the NFU organises a series of marketing meetings aimed at seasonal turkey producers. The nine meetings planned to take place in 2019 will happen across the country between 9 September and 7 October and are free to attend.
As well as providing a chance to network with other producers, the meetings are designed to cover a range of topics including updates on the feed market, consumer insights and cost of production.
NFU poultry adviser Aimee Mahony said:
“It’s good to meet members at the regional meetings and discuss our plans for the autumn turkey campaign. We will be updating members on current policy issues which may affect them and will share our plans for the third year of our #buymyturkey social media day which will take place this year on the 6 December.
"The producer speaker talking about 'Turkey farming my way' is always a highlight and I look forward to hearing the ups and downs of members who are marketing their turkeys from their farms. By sharing their stories all attendees can gain something to take back to their own businesses”.
