I was surprised to see that 3 of the top 5 heaviest turkeys ever recorded by the NWTF were Rio Grande turkeys from Oregon. That is pretty amazing. I wonder what the reasons are for Oregon producing these huge turkeys?

1. Oregon Rio Grande 2002: 37.125 lbs
2. (tie) Iowa Eastern 2001: 35.8125 lbs
2. (tie) Oregon Rio Grande 2001: 35.8125 lbs
4. Oregon Rio Grande 2005: 35.75 lbs
5. Wisconsin Eastern 2003: 34.5 lbs
