Thanksgiving for turkeys

Did you know that… ?

1) Minnesota is the top turkey-producing state in America, with a planned production total of 49 million in 2008.

2) The National Turkey Federation – yes, it exists! – estimated that 46 million turkeys—one fifth of the annual total of 235 million consumed in the United States in 2007—were eaten at Thanksgiving.

3) Nearly 88 percent of Americans said they had eaten turkey at Thanksgiving last year.

4) The average weight of turkeys purchased for Thanksgiving is 15 pounds, which means some 690 million pounds of turkey were consumed in the U.S. during Thanksgiving in 2008.

Amazing, huh?
