Turkey Processing Machines
The turkey is a large bird in the genus Meleagris, which is native to the Americas. One species, Meleagris gallopavo (commonly known as the domestic turkey or wild turkey), is native to the forests of North America, from Mexico, throughout the midwest and eastern United States, and into southeastern Canada. Regarding the name “Turkey”, some speculate that when Europeans first saw turkeys in Amercia, they wrongly identified the birds as a type of geineafowl, which were already being brought into Europe then by Turkey merchants via Constantinople and were nicknamed Thurkey coqs.
The species Meleagris gallopavo of turkeys is used by human for their meat. They were domesticated by the native people of Mexico from 800 BC. It is believed that these birds were then introduced into the US (present day Southwest US) or independently domesticated by the native people then by 200 BC. Turkeys were used for meat by Native Amercians by about 1100 AD and compared to wild turkeys, domestic turkeys are selectively bred to grow larger in size for their mean. Turkeys are usually consumed on special occasions such as Thanksgiving or Christmas.
Top Turkey Producing Countries
As of 2014, half of all global turkey meat output was produced by the United States. In fact some 95 percent of global turkey production takes place in the Americas and Europe. The Americas is clearly the largest turkey region producing 3.45 million tonnes or 61 per cent of the world total in 2012.
On a per capita basis, Israel actually consume more turkey than the U.S. According to U.S. Department of Agriculture data, Israelis ate 28.9 pounds of turkey in 1999, the last year for which statistics are available. That same year Americans ate 17.6 pounds of the mouthwatering fowl. Turkey meat is still mainly consumed in the West and Asia has yet to catch up on turkey consumption.
