Will There Be A Turkey Shortage?

Turkey is the star of Thanksgiving dinner, but will there be enough to go around this year? The reason behind record high Turkey prices, up 20% from last year, is a record-high cost of raising turkeys. Due to the high cost of feed, at the end of September, stockpiles of turkey meat slid 23 percent from a year earlier.

But experts say that there`s no need to worry, Theyll be enough to go around, said Kelly Zering, associate professor and extension specialist in the department of agricultural and resource economics at North Carolina State University in Raleigh. It might be that if you wait until the last minute, you might have fewer to choose from than you had last year.

Whew! Good thing, I was getting worried, turkey`s one of the most integral parts of Thanksgiving dinner! Although green bean casserole is my hands down favorite. What`s your favorite dish?
