Farm Sanctuary Announces New Research Report and Video Revealing Unnatural Breeding Practices of Turkeys

The first of its kind, Farm Sanctuary’s new report, “Unnatural Breeding Techniques and Results in Modern Turkey Production” addresses the consequences associated with intensive genetic selection and artificial insemination (AI) in the turkey industry. Purposefully bred to be disfigured for consumer palates, unhealthy birds endure harsh industrialized conditions by an industry that requires unnatural measures to produce them.

In conjunction with the report, Farm Sanctuary has just released a never-before-seen companion video: “Inside a Turkey Breeding Facility.” This video reveals the behind-the-wall realities of what turkeys in an industrialized breeding facility endure, shows the AI process – from the “milking” of toms to the insemination of hens – at one of the largest turkey breeding facilities in the U.S.
