Raising Turkeys for Profit and Fun - Which Is The Best Way?
 

While there are many different aspects of raising turkeys for profit and fun, one of the best ways is to raise organic and free range turkeys. In today's world, the market is good for those items that are raised in a manner conducive to the growing of the animal itself such as free range beef, goats and turkeys. Not only that, but on the profit end of things you'll find that your feed bill is less, your turkeys are healthier, and your market is better in the long run.

Many people are turning to free range meat as a source of protein in their diets. So raising turkeys is going to hit that mark well. It's not difficult, but you will need a secure area for the turkeys to enjoy their free range in. Remember, while they may grow relatively fast, they're still small and susceptible to predators. This can be predators such as coyotes, weasels, owls, eagles, domestic dogs, and a variety of other carnivores. The last thing you want is to have your herd of turkey's attacked on a regular basis so make sure they have a secure free ranging area.

Also, remember, organic means no processed foods, vitamins, or even medications. This means that you need to make sure that your turkeys herd stays healthy. You can solve a lot of problems with vitamin deficiencies and other illness by feeding them flakes of alfalfa. Of course, it's even better, if your free range turkeys are ranging on an older alfalfa field, but a flake or two of alfalfa spread out well throughout the ranging area can allow them to get the vitamins they need. Just make sure you're feeding enough alfalfa to fulfill the needs of all of the birds.

One of the nice things about raising turkeys is the fact that they're not that difficult to care for. They'll need warmth in the beginning of their lives when their growing and are babies, and you need to watch out for them piling up on each other for warmth and smothering each other. The best way to do that is to allow a good red heat lamp for each set of 20 birds.

Because of the ease of rearing turkeys, children can be intimately involved in raising turkeys for fun and profit. Even the youngest can make sure that water containers are full and that the birds are getting the care and warmth that they need. You'll be surprised what a family adventure it is to raise turkeys and enjoy free range turkey meat as well as the excitement of your consumers eating their first free range turkey.
