The MTRPC initiates research on challenges within the industry including turkey health and welfare. The Council is also responsible for promoting turkey consumption and educating the public of the nutritional benefits turkey offers health-conscious consumers - including its cancer-fighting nutrients and lean protein. Though independent in mission and functions from MTGA, MTRPC and MTGA communicate to ensure Minnesota's turkey growers needs are met.
