The Minnesota Turkey Research and Promotion Council collaborates with the National Turkey Federation (NTF) as our national turkey industry partner. Headquartered in Washington, D.C., NTF gives Minnesota turkey farmers a voice in the national and global marketplace.
Through our partnership with NTF, Minnesota turkey farmers benefit from efforts made by NTF on the national stage including:
Turkey marketing and promotion
Turkey health research and innovation
Expanded turkey market exports
Public educational outreach
We also attend NTF membership events providing information on the latest trends within the industry. If you are interested in attending one of these events, contact MTGA at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (763) 682-2171.
Currently three out of the 11 executive committee positions are held by Minnesotans. The Executive Committee guides NTF on trade, research, promotion, and public outreach efforts. The Executive Committee is supported by NTF staff. Here is a look at your Executive Committee members:
