What is a LEADR?

LEADR-logo

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.
