SwineCast 0908 Show Notes:
  • Pork Forum 2016 coverage continues with this report to the NPPC delegates by National Pork Producers Council CEO Neil Dierks.  It's about 15 minutes into the report when Dierks reviews background on the HSUS USDA Pork Trademark lawsuit and shares an interesting exchange between a legislator from North Carolina and Secretary of Agriculture Vilsack. You will want to talk with your congressman after hearing this. The Secretary later backpedaled from these recorded comments.
