Six ethical principles guide the We Care Commitment, enabling us to create advancements beyond our barn doors that positively impact our animals, our farms, our food, our people, our communities and the environment.
America’s pig farmers have embodied the We Care commitment for more than 30 years. We proactively pursue better technology and methods to improve the safety and quality of pork, while reducing environmental impact.
The idea of producing more pork than we did then, with 75% less land is just excellent to me. The study shows that the pork industry is really trying to be progressive with protecting our environment and natural resources.
Thank you for naming me America’s Pig Farmer of the Year. It’s an honor to represent pig farmers around the country at events where it will continue to be important for us to have a seat at the table. I’m excited to get started in this role.
