60lbs of raw turkey is perfect, in my opinion too. Remember you have alot of waste (bone, skin, cartledge, neck, ice, innards) from the original weight of the raw turkey. I figure if you buy 60lbs of raw turkey, you should end up with at least 30lbs of edible meat which will be more than plenty of turkey.
