I WILL NOT GO INTO BIG TIME TURKEY PRODUCTION
I WILL NOT GO INTO BIG TIME TURKEY PRODUCTION
IN A PREVIOUS ARTICLE, somebody asked me what project I would propose if I were given the grant of R500,000 for start-ups in agribusiness from the Department of Agriculture. My choice for a flagship project is sheep for a number of good reasons.

Now, here comes a wise guy saying: What particular project would you never get into for the R500,000 grant? Well, I will not venture into large scale turkey production. If I ever invest in turkeys, I will limit myself to about 60 or less. I will not make turkey as my flagship product.

Why? I will not raise turkeys purposely for meat because there is no developed big market for turkey meat in the Philippines. Some buyers we know offer only R80 per kilo live weight ex-farm. That’s too low. Filipinos are not turkey eaters.
