Rick Rehmeier, a pork producer from Augusta, Mo., Saturday was inducted into the Hall of Fame of the National Pork Producers Council for his steady leadership and dedication to the U.S. pork industry at NPPC’s annual business meeting – the National Pork Industry Forum – held here.
Rehmeier is the co-owner, manager and corporate shareholder of Rehmeier Farms Inc. He is the fifth-generation to live on and operate his family’s diversified farming operations.
A recipient of the NPPC Pork All American Award, Rehmeier served six years on NPPC’s board of directors, including chairing the budget and PorkPAC committees. He also served on the National Pork Board’s environmental committee.
Rehmeier founded the St. Charles County Pork Producers Association, Missouri’s most active and successful county pork producer organizations.
“Rick’s involvement in policy and his skilled guidance on the budget committee exemplify leadership essential to NPPC’s success,” said newly-elected NPPC President John Weber, a pork producer from Dysart, Iowa. “Throughout these years of leadership, Rick’s vision for the industry and his support for all who are part of it remain today. We are extremely pleased to induct him into the NPPC Hall of Fame.”
