5 appointed to National Pork Board

The National Pork Board uses checkoff dollars to develop new markets, conduct research and promote pork.

Five people have been appointed to serve three-year terms on the National Pork Board.

The appointees:

  1. Russell A. Nugent III, Lowell, Ark.
  2. Gene Noem, Ames, Iowa
  3. Bill Luckey, Columbus, Neb.
  4. Alicia Pedemonti, Hopkinton, N.H.
  5. Michael P. Skahill, Williamsburg, Va.

The National Pork Board is composed of 15 pork producers nominated by the National Pork Producers Delegate Body, which is made up of 132 producer and importer members.

The program was created and is administered under the authority of the Pork Promotion, Research, and Consumer Information Act of 1985. It became effective Sept. 5, 1986, when the Pork Promotion, Research, and Consumer Information Order was implemented. Assessments began Nov. 1, 1986.

Since 1966, Congress has authorized the development of industry-funded research and promotion boards to provide a framework for agricultural industries to pool their resources and combine efforts to develop new markets, strengthen existing markets, and conduct important research and promotion activities. The Agricultural Marketing Service provides oversight of 22 boards, paid for by industry assessments, which helps ensure fiscal accountability and program integrity.

More information about the board is available on the AMS National Pork Board page and on the National Pork Board website, http://www.pork.org.
