The National Pork Producers Council (NPPC) leadership and subject matter experts will be attending the 80th National Association of Farm Broadcasting (NAFB) Convention to partake in the annual Trade Talk. This event connects agriculture broadcasters, industry leaders and students to discuss key issues and topics impacting U.S. farmers and producers.


Farm broadcasters are a trusted source, provide an invaluable service and are a vital tool for communication with the agricultural community as they continue to tell the story of the industry – the who, what, how and where of America’s food, fiber and fuel system.


NPPC leadership and subject matter experts will be speaking up about the latest policy priorities on animal welfare, commerce and production, environment and energy and trade.
