NPPC President Says Pew Report On Modern Agriculture Not Factual

A new report from the John Hopkin’s University Bloomberg Center for a Livable Future is highly critical of modern animal agriculture.  National Pork Producers Council President Randy Spronk says people need to consider the source when looking at this report.

He says the charges against animal agriculture made in the report bear little resemblance to the truth.

Spronk  says he took time this week to set the record straight when he addressed the National Restaurant Association about animal agriculture’s positive impact on the environment.

The Bloomberg Center initiated Meatless Mondays and has called for phasing out certain production practices, banning certain animal antibiotics and placing new restrictions on the use of manure.
