The dates for this year’s NFU autumn turkey marketing meetings have been announced.
Each year the NFU organises a series of marketing meetings aimed at seasonal turkey producers. The meetings are sponsored by ForFarmers. Following the 2020 virtual meeting, the eight meetings this year are planned to take place in person across the country between 13 September and 11 October and are free to attend.
Registrations are open and aimed at all seasonal turkey producers, these events are free to attend, producers just need to register in advance. The meetings provide an opportunity to ask questions and provide useful insights for all those in seasonal turkey production. Each event will include updates on the feed market, consumer insights, cost of production, and other practical information to help producers get the most from their turkey business.
Tom Glen, Poultry Adviser for the NFU, plays a key role in coordinating the marketing meetings: “ForFarmers has been a key supporter of the NFU’s Autumn Turkey Marketing Meetings in previous years and we are delighted that they are continuing their support in 2021. Having met virtually in 2020 due to coronavirus restrictions, we are looking forward to meeting face to face this year with producers to share insight, knowledge, and support, to help seasonal turkey producers have a successful season.”
David Hilldrith, Poultry Sales Director, ForFarmers comments: “We’re proud to once again be supporting the NFU’s Autumn Turkey Marketing Meetings. We are thrilled that they will be taking place in person this year, and look forward to providing an update on the raw material markets, whilst offering an insight into the role that nutrition can play in your turkey venture.”
