Look, I don't begrudge anyone for wanting to earn a living and provide for himself and his family. But look at his resume. There is no question that Mr Shields has compiled an outstanding won-loss record over the years -- but the way I look at it, that's not the issue at all. Where's the longevity? Heck... forget simply bringing a sense of stability to the young men that he had come…

New president of the Illinois Pork Producers Association educates

1 year, 5 months ago by Jim Dewey

Producers are continuing to try to educate consumers about how pigs are raised

Illinois Pork Producer Todd Dail is the newly elected president of the
Illinois Pork Producers Association (IPPA). In light of more and more buyers
requiring changes in housing of pigs, Dail said, they are continuing to try
to educate consumers about how pigs are raised and why certain methods are favored over others. "We're still trying to explain to consumers that the
reason we raise pigs the way we do is, it's better on the pigs," he said.
Raising pigs outside in weather like we have had this winter, Dail said "is
not only hard on the producers, it's hard on the pigs."

Dail noted that some of that consumer education is funded through the Pork
Checkoff. He said the IPPA participates in advertising and they put on
events to promote pork to consumers. On the producer side, Dail said, "We
fund projects for research to improve our production even better that it is
now."

Dail says there is still a market for farmers who produce a small number of
hogs on their farms, but he says it's "such a much smaller market that it
doesn't work well to feed the world." And even though some countries have
placed limits on U S pork because of the way it is produced, Dail says
exports prove the U S product is superior. He said, "I think it's just over
25 percent of the pigs that we raise in the U S get exported to other
countries.
