Sadie Lloyd Revisited...
[Return to Topics]

So far not much info Tom...

Sadie Lloyd provided the foundation for Franks Bourbon Red population. Sadie (who pased away a few years ago) was famous for rasiing and showing champion turkeys for over 70 years. She learned much about the poultry business from her mother and Gladys Honssinger of Lebanon, Missouri who won many important shows in the 1930's. Sadie and Gladys are considered by many to be the greatest Bourbon Red breeders of all time. In the world of Bronze turkeys, their skill was only rivaled by Cecil Moore from Irving, Texas whose birds' genes cam to populate Frank's farm as well." upload/snail_usa_012002.pdf

Salmoneye: You are persistent, and I appreciate your efforts.

For somebody who is "famous" there isn't much available about her. I got interested because we have Bourbon Reds and they were sold to us as coming from the Sadie Lloyd strain. The guy we got them from said that meant they were superior in growth, temperament etc etc. Been very happy with the birds, but it got me curious about the lady.

thanks again! Have a wonderful Easter!

Sadie Lloyd was my mother. She was really involved in the breeding of Bourbon Reds so that they had more white meat. She was also involved in a number of turkey shows, such as American Royal in the 30's and 40's. She has been gone for 24 years now. I have recently learned that there is at least one person who can trace all of their Bourban Reds back to the ones that they got from her many years ago.
