Responsible Farming

Farmers have led industrywide efforts to achieve tremendous improvements in all areas of modern pig farming. Although we have always sought to practice agriculture in an ethical manner, momentum grew, starting in the mid-1980s, to scientifically evaluate and improve farming methods and strongly promote nationwide adoption of best farming practices through education programs.

Today, modern pig farms combine the best of traditional farming practices with the benefits of modern technology and agriculture science.

Given that less than 2 percent of people in the United States are engaged in the agriculture business, it’s no wonder there is a knowledge gap between consumers and farmers.
