US - It&#39;s just about time for Thanksgiving. And while many of us love to sit down to a wonderful turkey dinner with our family and friends, few give much thought to where that turkey comes from. In fact, today&#39;s turkey is something of a miracle that has been developed and bred to meet the tastes of modern-day Americans. Newsdesk recently talked with University of Maryland Prof. Nickolas Zimmermann about today&#39;s turkey, where it comes from, and a major challenge poultry farmers could be facing in the future. An assistant professor of animal and avian sciences in Maryland&#39;s College of Agriculture and Natural Resources, Zimmermann knows something about turkeys. <i>Source: Newswise</i>
