Title Moroni Feed Company
Description other turkeys to jump up and take a place When it was dark and al! the roosts were full, we would tip-toe out of the coop!" Don Prestwich, son of Joseph Prestwich. also remembers the early days "We put a rack on a wagon and, with a shovel, tossed grain from one side to the other as a way of mixing it. Each poult was taken by hand and its beak was dipped into water or milk to help it learn to drink. Now, the poults are just dumped out in the coop. We used to feed the turkeys twice a day. Now, everything is automated and feeders are filled once or twice a week according to the age of the turkeys. At noon we used to pour water on the mash and feed the turkeys wet mash thinking it would help them eat more We used to slip in barrels of buttermilk and feed the turkeys, as well as shipping in blocks of whey from the dairy processing places. We used to run our turkeys alongside the river and they waded and drank in the river I remember dipping water out of the river in fifty-gallon drums and hauling it to the turkeys in an old Model T which held three or four barrels."
