How many turkeys are eaten during the holidays?

    The U.S. Department of Agriculture amazingly keeps track of these types of things.  Approximately 45 million turkeys are cooked and eaten for the big Turkey Day in the United States. Forty five million, it turns out, is one sixth of the total number of turkeys purchased each year in the US.  Over a 22 year period, Americans per capita consumption of turkeys rose from 8.3 pounds in 1975 to 18.5 pounds in 1997.

    In 2010 more than 244 million Turkeys were raised.  Of those 244 million, about 46 million were eaten at Thanksgiving, 22 million at Christmas, and 19 million at Easter.  Perhaps rather than eating a turkey for Thanksgiving, families can “adopt” one!
