Many issues discussed during meetings.

The National Pork Producers Council held its Spring Legislative Action Conference in Washington, D.C. March 24-25. More than 100 pork producers from 20 states participated. While in the nation's capital they met with members of Congress to discuss important industry issues. They also heard from Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack who discussed the agency's efforts to expand trade, livestock competition and the need to revitalize rural communities.

Producers received updates on a number of legislative issues from NPPC staff as well. The Child Nutrition Act approved by the Senate Ag Committee, reauthorization of the Livestock Mandatory Price Reporting Act and pending free trade agreements were among the issues discussed.
