Abstract

It can be stated, with confidence, that few persons in Western Australia eat turkey meat more than once a year, and many have not tasted it for some years. The majority of households do not include poultry in their usual diet and turkey is on the menu for special occasions only. Although the demand for turkeys by the local market is small, it is seldom that sufficient turkeys are marketed to meet the demand. There are approximately 14,000 turkeys in this State. Only about 4 per cent, of these are found in the metropolitan area, and the remainder are spread fairly evenly over the farming areas.
