It’s Turkey Time

Did you know that Minnesota expects to raise about 47 million turkeys in 2010? That’s tops in the nation, followed by North Carolina (31.0 million), Arkansas (28.0 million), Missouri (17.5 million), Indiana (16.0 million) and Virginia (15.5 million). Those six states together will probably account for two-thirds of all the U.S. turkeys produced in 2010.

Fun facts like this one from the USDA National Agricultural Statistics Service and many others are available at the U.S. Census Bureau’s Facts for Features and Special Editions website right now, and come back for seconds later in the week for some more seasonal statistics on Black Friday.
