Based on papers given at the 21st Poultry Science Symposium, Newport, Shropshire, UK, Sept. 1987. It is quite a thorough account of new developments in turkey science. Recent years have seen a huge increase in the production and consumption of turkey meat. This book gathers much of the important work concerning the breeding, growing and health of turkeys. The final part of the book deals with meat production. Topics include: the world turkey industry, genetics, physiology of egg production, embryology, nutrition and management of breeding stock, biology of growth, the physiology of muscle growth, nutritional and environmental responses of growing turkeys, respiratory diseases and enteric conditions of turkeys, meat yield, texture flavor and taint.
