National Pork Board members are meeting in Des Moines this week ironing out their budget for the coming year. That will be finalized at their meeting in November. Pork Board member Brad Greenway who raises hogs in Davison County South Dakota says it’ll be challenging trying to fund their priorities as they have fewer dollars to work with.
Greenway says they want to make sure they have enough funding in their budget to deal with emergency situations that come up. He points to the PED virus that erupted earlier this year. Greenway says they’ll hear a review on that at their meeting.
Greenway says besides the budget the Pork Board will also receive updates on their domestic and international marketing programs.
