Home Indiana Agriculture News INFB Survey: Indiana Turkey Prices Down 24% this Thanksgiving Cranberries (fresh, 12 oz. package)$1.85$2.46+33% AVERAGE TOTAL MEAL PRICE$47.42$42.66-10% The item that most significantly contributed to this reduction in cost is the Thanksgiving staple, turkey. Last year, shoppers found that a 16-pound turkey cost $21.47 ($1.34 per pound), on average. This year, that same turkey should cost approximately $16.32 ($1.02 per pound), which is 24 percent cheaper than 2018. The cost of turkey also saw a significant decrease last year. In 2017, shoppers found that a 16-pound turkey cost $26 ($1.62 per pound).According to AFBF’s director of market intelligence Dr. John Newton, turkey wholesale prices are up significantly this year, so the decrease in consumer turkey prices can be attributed to competition between retailers in an effort to draw customers to their store for the upcoming holiday.“If you’re headed to the store soon to get your Thanksgiving turkey, you can expect to see very affordable prices this year on a high-quality product,” said Isabella Chism, INFB’s second vice president and chair of the Women’s Leadership Committee. “Many people don’t realize that Indiana ranks fourth in the nation for turkey production, so we have many local farmers to thank for our holiday meal this year. Turkeys also consume a significant amount of soybean meal, a top Hoosier farm commodity, so they’re great for our state’s economy.”Other traditional Thanksgiving items that Hoosier shoppers can expect to be a bit more affordable this year include cube stuffing, pumpkin pie fulling and frozen peas. Items that may be a bit more expensive this year include sweet potatoes, rolls, fresh carrots and celery and fresh cranberries. All other items, including milk, pie shells and whipping cream remain relatively unchanged.To capture the diversity in Thanksgiving meals across the U.S., INFB also collected prices for other frequently served Thanksgiving items and found that consumers can expect to pay $9.70 for a 4-pound ham (compared to $9 in 2018) and $2.73 for a 5-pound bag of russet potatoes (compared to $2.80 in 2018).Indiana’s survey is completed in conjunction with a national survey administered by the American Farm Bureau Federation. AFBF found that the national meal average for 10 people is $48.91 which is approximately 13% more than Indiana’s average meal price this year. Nationally, a total of 141 volunteer shoppers in 39 states participated this year.AFBF also surveyed Americans about their Thanksgiving traditions and learned 90% of respondents still celebrate Thanksgiving with a special meal – mostly still home-cooked. A whopping 95% of Americans still enjoy turkey at their Thanksgiving meal. Many families are expanding on that tradition, with nearly half serving both turkey and ham.Shoppers with an eye for bargains in all areas of the country should be able to purchase individual menu items at prices comparable to the Farm Bureau survey averages. INFB and AFBF’s 2019 Thanksgiving market basket prices track closely with the government’s Consumer Price Index for food eaten at home. Facebook Twitter Results from Indiana Farm Bureau’s annual Thanksgiving market basket survey show Hoosier shoppers can expect to spend approximately 10% less at the grocery store this Thanksgiving. According to this year’s pricing survey, the average cost for a Thanksgiving dinner for 10 this year, including 12 traditional food items, is $42.66 or $4.26 per person, which is approximately 10 percent cheaper than in 2018.The INFB Thanksgiving market basket survey was conducted by volunteer shoppers across the state who collected prices on specific food items from one of their local grocery stores. Volunteer shoppers are asked to look for the best possible prices, without taking advantage of special promotional coupons or purchase deals.The market basket price of $42.66 includes a 16-pound turkey, ingredients for stuffing and a pumpkin pie, sweet potatoes, rolls, peas, a carrot and celery veggie tray, whole milk, cranberries, whipping cream and miscellaneous baking items such as eggs, sugar and butter.

Juventus were lucky in their 0-0 draw with Serie A new boys Sassuolo, eventually winning on penalties in the Trofeo TIM.“Overall the important thing was we finished this stage of pre-season with no injuries,” said Antonio Conte.“This evening it was positive that we didn’t concede, but we showed very little of what we know and are capable of. It’s understandable, as we trained very intensely and the legs were pretty heavy.“We know that we play a different type of football and will try to work even harder. I have a group of strikers available and will make my evaluations based on each game and who proves they deserve it during the week.”The Bianconeri lost the first game on penalties to Milan, so had one point and faced hosts Sassuolo in the second Trofeo TIM mini-match. It was a special night at the Mapei Stadium for Simone Zaza, who is co-owned by Juve.Sassuolo won the Serie B title last season, earning their first ever promotion into the top flight. They had the stronger start, as Jasmin Kurtic cut in from the right and his angled drive was fingertipped on to the base of the far post by Marco Storari. Moments later it was Alberto Pomini who needed his wits about him with a reaction save to deny Alessandro Matri from close range.Mirko Vucinic had plenty of time and space, but ballooned over the bar from a very promising position. The Montenegrin did better as an assist-man with a backheel flick, but Matri scuffed the finish well wide.Kurtic went very close again on 16 minutes, as he went on the counter-attack and cut back to commit Federico Peluso, but curled just past the far top corner.Domenico Berardi also turned over from the edge of the box, as did Zaza, while substitute Juventus goalkeeper Rubinho performed a great save on Emanuele Terranova’s glancing header from a free kick.Fabio Quagliarella hit the side-netting, but it was mainly Sassuolo and Romanian summer signing Marius Alexe ballooned another excellent scoring opportunity over the bar. The 0-0 result meant another penalty shoot-out for Juve and Quagliarella’s opener was saved by Pomini. Zaza sent Rubinho the wrong way to immediately give Sassuolo the advantage.Marcel Buchel, Kurtic (with a cheeky chipped penalty) and Pol Garcia Tena scored, but Rubinho parried the Alexe effort.However, Matri ballooned well over to give Sassuolo the advantage again, which Simone Missiroli took. Arturo Vidal converted and Terranova could’ve won it for the hosts, but Rubinho fingertipped his penalty on to the upright.It went to sudden death, as Marco Motta scored and Rubinho performed another excellent save on Berardi.As per the rules of the Trofeo TIM, Juventus picked up two points for winning on penalties, while Sassuolo received one. The final match is Milan-Sassuolo. Juventus 0-0 Sassuolo (4-3 on penalties)Penalty shoot-out: Quagliarella (saved J), Zaza (goal S), Buchel (goal J), Kurtic (goal S), Pol Garcia (goal J), Alexe (saved S), Matri (missed J), Missiroli (goal S), Vidal (goal J), Terranova (saved S), Motta (goal J), Berardi (saved S)Juventus: Storari (Rubinho 25); Lichtsteiner (Penna 25), Ogbonna, Peluso (Buchel 29); Isla (Vidal 37), Padoin (Motta 18), Rossi, Asamoah, De Ceglie (Pol Garcia 18); Matri, Vucinic (Quagliarella 25)Sassuolo: Pomini; Gazzola, Antei, Terranova, Longhi; Kurtic, Magnanelli, Missiroli; Berardi, Zaza, AlexePlay the world’s most challenging fantasy football game by selecting players from Europe’s top five leagues and competing for prizes.
