The National Pork Board is reacting today to the recent Ohio State University research paper detailing researchers’ discovery of an antibiotic-resistant gene in one swine farrowing barn.
An important takeaway from the study is that the U.S. pork supply is safe, according to the National Pork Board. The resistant gene identified in the study was not found in a market hog, and there was no threat to food safety
A Bancroft pig farmer who was president of the Iowa Pork Producers Association in the early 1970s and later became a vendor icon on the Register’s Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa (RAGBRAI) has passed away at the age of 88. Paul Bernhard, better known to RAGBRAI riders as “Mr. Pork Chop,” was famous for his signature “pork choooooop” call.
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.
