The UW Turkey Sale has been an activity of the Poultry Science Club for over 60 years, and is the club’s major fundraiser each year. Proceeds are used to fund students’ travel to the International Poultry Expo in Atlanta, GA, each year.
The sale has gone through many changes through the years. The club started purchasing live turkeys to process from the campus turkey research project. After that research was ended the club purchased live turkeys to process from a local grower. This source could only offer limited sizes and eventually this source also ended. The club then shifted to getting pre-dressed, fresh turkeys from a source in Minnesota.
Turkeys – Fresh, raised in Minnesota and distributed from Belleville, Wisconsin.
The sizes range from 11-26+ lbs. The price this year will remain at $2.50 per pound.
