You’ve heard the buzz about sustainable agriculture. For pork production, that means doing what’s right for people, pigs, and the planet.
The National Pork Board has developed Pork Cares Farm Impact Reports for all pork producers to take credit for work you’re already doing on your operation.
These reports will help you measure, document and share your sustainable farm practices and give you ideas for areas to improve.
Diversifying and differentiating U.S. pork in international markets is a key priority for pork producers.
Pork Checkoff-funded studies are available to explore how the U.S. can differentiate itself in key markets.
Contact our team to request a U.S. Pork differentiation report.
AgView is a pig-contact-tracing platform funded by the Pork Checkoff.
The platform helps promote business continuity in case of a foreign animal disease concern by providing herd health and movement data to state and federal animal health officials.

“The U.S. pig industry is the envy of the world. Many other industries throughout the world model theirs after ours.
It is really time for our pig industry to be proud of what they have achieved and communicate their achievements in a way that is understood by the people that consume your products.”Dr. Frank Mitloehner, UC-Davis CLEAR Center
