Butterball ends contracts with 20 Missouri turkey growers
Butterball is ending its contracts with 20 central Missouri turkey growers. A statement from the company says their decision is a reflection of consumer trends that occurred before the COVID-19 crisis.
Butterball says international demand has weakened as has the value of commodity turkey meat.
The company says the affected turkey growers in Osage County, Missouri will remain on contract for 90 more days.
