Bigger turkeys for Thanksgiving in short supply

Posted: Updated:

 Butterball is dealing with a shortage of large, fresh turkeys this year.

 It's all because some farmers who supply Butterball couldn't get their turkeys to plump up sufficiently, so fresh ones weighing more than 16 pounds might be in short supply.

But don't worry. There are still plenty of frozen turkeys from Butterball.

Butterball produces about 20% of U.S. turkeys, that production takes place right here in Arkansas.
