NPPC Reacts to USDA Pork Purchase

“The National Pork Producers Council (NPPC) is grateful for USDA’s $100 million supplemental pork purchase, which will be used for various federal food assistance programs,” says NPPC President R.C. Hunt, a North Carolina pork producer.

“This purchase will help pork producers who are struggling with the effects of this severe drought, which has adversely affected much of the nation’s corn crop.

“In fact, many producers still face the prospect of severe losses because of record-high feed prices, which have gone up because of the drought.

“NPPC will continue to work with USDA to help pork producers through this current crisis,” he says.
