Like there isnt any more grand champions than Jandl's dry turkeys. Butterball is still the best, hum must be losing money in the bank market I see.

The headline is wrong, you can't patent a name. This is a trademark issue, not a patent issue.

Gee who juges the turkeys to be Grand Champions. Mr Jaindl or is there a contest held every year because if I understand the term Grand Champion there can only be one not many. BS

Jandls turkeys are the worst I ever had, yuk dry, stringy, tastless, not tender. They should be the Grand champion loser.

They should defend their trade names in court you idiots. Like them personally or not this is a business matter and not a tasting contest.

Sounds like you don't know how to cook a turkey, you turkey. Jaindl's is a fine tasting bird and if cooked correctly, is not anything but moist, tasty, and delicious.

Even my dog wouldn't eat the bird he burried it. Oh by the way I am a gourmet chef....many many people have eaten my food and love it. Butter ball makes the best turkey and also Chestnut ridge a local farm. Sounds like you have been Jandlized. Once you eat one of their birds your taste buds rot out...sorry for you!

I agree. I've been cooking turkeys for 40 years, and tried a Jaindl bird only once.

It stunk, and even the brine (12 hours) didn't help.

Just like you said, dry and tough.

So it's been Butterball all the way.

only a fake or arrogant cook would call themselves a gourmet chef.

Grand champions they should earn that name. Have a turkey fight off every year. Use their 2 best turkeys. Thats the way wild birds do it to find out.

You can easily search the US Patent and Trademark office to see if Jaindel indeed has been assigned the Tradename for Grand Champion for turkey or fowl products of commerce. Likewise, due diligence from the Mn company should have sought out if the Grand Champion tradename was used in the related field of commerce. Ironically, the US Patent and Trademark office will check if the requested tradename was registered in the related field of commerce.

It would be good to understand the size of one company against the other to see if one of them is flexing their market turkey muscle.
