Turkeys across the country are bound for the dinner table, in greater numbers than usual anyway, for the Thanksgiving holiday. The birds at Stein Turkey Farm shouldn’t see much change however, as they are slated for processing into lunch meats. This gives the operation at the Stein farm more regular year-round business than those that specializes selling whole turkeys for the dinner table. Since first going into business back in 1995, the Stein Turkey Farm has had to adapt to a changing industry in housing, feeding and caring for their birds. Justin Stein notes that regulations from the Indiana Department of Environmental Management have required the operation to make significant changes in recent years. For example, the last few years have seen restrictions on the use of antibiotics among turkey and other farm-animal populations. This is meant to prevent the development and spread of diseases resistant to antibiotics that could pose a threat to humans. Compensating for the lack of antibiotics has forced Stein Turkey Farm to closely monitor their turkey populations’ health and pursue innovative ways to keep their birds healthy without regular use of medication.
