The Pork Industry Forum, held March 5-7, 2015 in San Antonio, TX, gathered pork producers looking to gain insights on the Checkoff funded programs and the policy activities being pursued.
Of note:

  • Dr. Paul Sundberg, Science & Technology, National Pork Board, suggests that PEDv was valuable in that it has spurred the US pork producers to prepare for the next animal disease. Dr. Sundberg also outlined the value of the Swine Health Information Center and the Center's next steps [video].
  • On the trade front, Ambassador Darci Vetter, Chief Agriculture Negotiator, Office of the United States Trade Representative, gave details on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and what it means to producers. "We won’t accept a deal for the sake of a deal, for us, the substance is what drives the timeline." says Ambassador Vetter [video].

These presentations from the Pork Industry Forum are brought to you with support from the National Pork Board and the National Pork Producers Council.
