Abstract

Wholesomeness and grade inspection loss were monitored in a selected population of California turkeys. Of the several production variables normally measured in the production of meat turkeys, only "week of year place" and "temperature on date of processing" were found to be statistically significantly associated with "percent of flock receiving grade A." Factor analysis reduced the number of original variables, but some quality of the information resident in the original variables was lost.
