Farmer's Report

Turkey Trends - December 2, 2022


Analysts report that the whole turkey market was unchanged this week. Analysts expect this market to trend flat in the near term, and have reported that the 2022 Cold Storage inventory was 31% lower year-over-year. Analysts are forecasting short supply for the remainder of 2022.


The boneless, skinless turkey breast market declined this week. Analysts expect this market to trend higher in the near term, due to processors managing through short supply, and impacts from avian influenza and ongoing labor issues. Very limited spot loads of turkey breasts have been uncovered, and pricing has been at record highs, but is starting to recede, according to analysts.
