So I was just at a market selling eggs, chickens and some of my turkeys. And I had a new customer come up and give snide remark about my turkeys being $72 or more. So I broke it down to the customer like this: Say for generally speaking all turkeys are 18 lbs. = $72 Cost of turkey poult = $4.54 per Turkey eats on the high end 80 lbs of feed per bird Cost per pound is say $0.23 so roughly $18.46 Now I have to have them processed in the State of WI to sell at a farmers market. $4 a So right there you are at $27 So lets say on the long side the Turkey is alive 120 days = 16 weeks. That means that you take that $27 out of the $72 and I make $45. So lets take that $45 and spread that over 120 days. That is $0.37per day I am making per turkey. Now that does not include the heat/electric for the brooder, water for brooder and pasture, gas and time traveling to the processors. So tell me am I still charging to much? That is when they made a sigh and walked away. I swear I just want to smack some people. Thanks for letting me vent.
