The money's on the pigs 🐖🪙Jul 20, 2022
Piggy banks aren’t the only pigs that are full of money. The National Pork Producers Council (NPPC) highlights in a new economic report how America’s pork industry and pig farmers are significant contributors to the U.S.’ agricultural and overall economy.
- The pork industry is a pillar of the American economy and has had positive effects on other related sectors as well.
- Terry Wolters, NPPC president and owner of Stoney Creek Farms in Pipestone, Minnesota, says it’s vital to share the information on how the sector impacts the larger economy.
Another positive effect that producers are having is providing affordable, nutritious, and safe pork to the national and international markets.
