BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Turkey Federation is presenting traditional Thanksgiving turkeys to Gov. Doug Burgum and Deputy Agriculture Commissioner Tom Bodine.

A Monday morning ceremony was scheduled. The turkeys traditionally are given "pardons."

The annual event also benefits charity. The Turkey Federation is donating a dozen frozen turkeys each to the Ruth Meiers Hospitality House and the Abused Adult Resource Center, both in Bismarck.

North Dakota isn't a big turkey producer. Nine farms in the state produce about a million birds each year.
