THE NFU is to host its popular seasonal turkey marketing meeting online this year – and it is open to both members and non-members alike.

The union usually hosts a series of meetings across the country through the Autumn to offer producers of Christmas turkeys information on sales, marketing and other relevant sector developments.

This year, it will take place online on 3 September using Microsoft Teams.

The NFU said: “Although this year’s turkey marketing meeting is being delivered slightly differently, it will still contain all the important insights and updates for seasonal turkey producers.”

The meeting will be chaired by NFU turkey group chair Michael Bailey and will feature three key presentations covering:

  • The feed market
  • Consumer insights
  • Cost of production
  • Legislation updates
  • Top tips for marketing turkeys from the farm gate

Kelly Turkeys’ Paul Kelly will be speaking, as will a For Farmers representative covering feed.

Those wishing to view the meeting need to register in advance on the NFU’s website.
