On a global scale, turkey production volumes are relatively stable. In this stable market turkey farmers should try to get as much out of each produced kilogram as possible.

"On a global scale, turkey production volumes are relatively stable. In this stable market turkey farmers should try to get as much out of each produced kilogram as possible. Efficiency improvement is the main challenge for every turkey farmer. Efficiency starts with reducing unnecessary losses. One dead turkey is a relatively high cost for a turkey farmer. So reducing mortality should get due attention. Also leg disorders should be prevented to get optimal growth and feed conversion results. Average turkeys weigh twice as much as they did 75 years ago, in a much shorter production period. This increase leads to much more stress for the turkey and higher demands on farmer skills.

Turkey Signals follows the cycle on a turkey farm.
Turkey Signals describes how turkey focused management will improve production and welfare of the turkeys and thus the turkey farmer’s economic results.
Turkey Signals is a practical guide that shows you how to pick up the signals given by your animals at an early stage, how to interpret them and what action to take.
Turkey Signals is part of the Poultry Signals® series.

Need-to-know knowledge
The background of this project is that it aims to improve turkey production. Turkey Signals is a practical book with information that every person involved in turkey production should know. Certainly not a nice coffee-table book, but a book with need-to-know knowledge."
