What is a LEADR?
The National Pork Producers Council (NPPC) created the Legislative Education Action Development Resource (LEADR) as a grassroots program to effectively build, maintain and coordinate trained volunteers to advance the U.S. pork industry agenda and defend against unfavorable public policy at both the state and national levels. LEADR participants include a wide range of individuals involved in every aspect of pork production, including producers and contract growers, hog buyers, veterinarians, nutritionists, suppliers and others. All are engaged in the U.S. pork industry and have a livelihood to protect it.
National Pork Producers Council
NPPC advocates for the social, environmental and economic sustainability of U.S. pork producers and their partners by supporting reasonable public policies that expand access to global operations and don’t unnecessarily restrict operations.Learn More
PorkPAC is the political action committee of NPPC. It allows the U.S. pork industry to educate and support candidates at the federal level whose views coincide with the interests of pork producers, processors, marketers, consumers and the pork business. A financially strong PorkPAC counters well-funded opposition group activities by strengthening NPPC’s grassroots, communications and public policy programs.Learn More
