Mussehl, F. E. (1926). Turkey production. (University of Nebraska Agricultural Experiment Station Circular No. 34)
Whatever problems turkey production presents, lack of demand for roast turkey is not at this time one of them. Turkeys rate so high in popular esteem that very rarely indeed do prices fall below that of dressed chickens and usually the best grades are 12 to 15 cents per pound higher during the holiday season. The world of commerce has become quite complex but the consuming public still has one clear way of speaking to producers. In the language of the dollar we are apparently being asked to raise more turkeys.
