Minnesota, USA (KDAL) - The next big thing is Thanksgiving coming up this week. Thursday's celebration will of course feature turkey on most tables. Minnesota leads the nation in turkey production. The head of the Minnesota Turkey Growers Association, Steve Olson, says the state has raised about 40-million turkeys so far this year.
Turkey consumption is up this year, not so much for the whole roasted bird, but for other products made with turkey meat.
