Join us for a visit to Cooper Farms, an Ohio turkey farm! Students will see inside two turkey barns: the starter barn where newly hatched poults grow to be 5 1/2 weeks old and the finishing barn where they will continue growing until they reach 21 weeks and are over 20 pounds.
Your students will learn about:
- turkey anatomy, behavior, and biosecurity
- different diets for different stages of life
- how turkeys are cared for as they grow
Cooper Farms has been in the turkey business since 1938. Today the company includes two hatcheries, meat processing plants, egg processing plants, feed mills, and many helping hands raising our turkeys, hogs and chickens on our farms.
