Why are turkeys so cheap?

That's in part because innovations in housing and genetics mean it takes less time and less feed to raise a turkey to market weight than it used to. In fact, turkeys today cost less than half the price per pound that they did in the 1970s, after adjusting for inflation.

Why are turkey prices so high?

The drop in demand has led producers to anticipate less of a spike around the holidays, translating to fewer turkeys in cold storage and higher wholesale prices that mean higher retail prices for consumers. This year, average wholesale whole turkey prices are 96 cents per pound compared to last year's 80 cents.
