A REVIEW OF NPPC’S SUCCESS IN 2015 AND A LOOK AHEAD TO 2016

December 1, 2015

Dave Warner, Director of Communications for NPPC, highlights some of the progress NPPC has made for the nation’s pork producers, including reauthorization of Mandatory Price Reporting with beneficial provisions, a repeal of Mandatory Country of Origin Labeling, and obtaining funding for important programs like enhanced surveillance of emerging swine diseases and improved preparedness for disease outbreak. Looking ahead to 2016, Warner states that the Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule is one of the top issues for NPPC, as well as TPP and the Child Nutrition Act.
