Turkey Management has been the go-to book on turkeys since 1939. The only trouble is, it has been out of print for decades! Thoughtful farmers, breeders, and hobbyists have had to seek out used copies of this book, often seeking in vain, especially for copies of the latest and most complete Sixth Edition. Now you can own a new copy of the Sixth Edition of Turkey Management, with over a thousand pages of turkey lore and 120 illustrations. Incubating, brooding, rearing, feeding, finishing, showing, breeding, free range: it's all here. First published in 1955, this Sixth Edition of Turkey Management was published after all of the revolutions in poultry science had taken place, so it's modern, but before small turkey flocks and free range had vanished and their techniques forgotten. Because it was written before the shift to factory farming, Turkey Management focuses on things you can do yourself: homemade shelters and feeders, feed rations that rely on regional crops, and the use of natural ingredients for vitamins, minerals, and protein (rather than synthetic ingredients or vitamin/mineral premixes). This gives you a better understanding of how all pieces fit together, even if you never pick up a hammer or mix your own feed. Turkey Management is volume 7 of the Norton Creek Classics series. See http: //www.nortoncreekpress.com for these practical, best-of-breed poultry books.
