Turkey Supply Secure Despite Bird Flu

(Bismarck, ND) — The National Turkey Federation president says the supply of turkeys this holiday season is secure, despite outbreaks of bird flu. Officials say consumers should have no issue finding turkeys at a reasonable price, especially with Thanksgiving sales. The U.S. Department of Agriculture puts the price of a large frozen turkey at nine cents more per pound than last year when sales are factored in. Nearly 237-thousand birds have been killed by avian influenza in North Dakota so far this year.
