Caring For Our Turkeys
Looking after birds is a holistic approach that incorporates general management of the birds, feed/nutrition, environment and animal health. This includes making sure they have access to clean water and nutritious food, are healthy and free from disease, pain and injury, are housed in environments that are comfortable and stress-free, and are able to express natural behaviours.
All Saskatchewan turkey farmers must follow a national Flock Care Program© that outlines the best housing, management practices and standards of bird care. Animal care is a priority from the time the poults enter their barns until the moment the birds leave the farm for processing.
