Farmers in Iowa continue to expand usage of no-till or strip-till field practices to limit runoff, improve water quality and reduce production costs. Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey is sharing recommendations and resources that are valuable for experienced no-/strip-tillers and those new to the practice.
Timely, appropriate on-farm euthanasia is a vital component of today’s pork operations and Iowa hog farmers are realizing the benefits of some long-term work in this area led by Iowa State University researchers Suzanne Millman (College of Veterinary Medicine) and Anna Johnson (College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.)
Every day, the efforts of Iowa hog farmers and all those associated with pork production on farms across America demonstrate care and concern for how pigs are cared for and how pork is produced. The adoption of a statement of ethical principles calls attention to producers’ responsibilities to uphold the highest standards and maintain the public’s trust.
The Iowa Pork Producers Association is an industry-inclusive organization whose mission is to provide a unified voice to promote and educate for a sustainable, socially responsible, profitable and globally competitive pork industry.
