Iowans among finalists for national pig farmer award

The National Pork Board announced the finalists for the inaugural award on Sept. 1. The goal of the program is to honor the U.S. pig farmer who best excels at raising pigs using the We CareSM ethical principles of pork production and is best able to share his or her farming story with the American public. The award is part of the Pork Board’s commitment to grow consumer trust in all aspects of U.S. pork production.

The We Care Responsible Pork Initiative

We Care Logo with Mark
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.
