ADVOCATING FOR PORK: The National Pork Producers Council elected Wisconsin native AV Roth as its president on March 6.

AV Roth elected president of National Pork Producers Council

Roth owns and operates a farrow-to-wean operation in Crawford County, Wis.

Howard “AV” Roth, a fifth-generation hog farmer from Wauzeka, Wis., was elected on March 6 as president of the National Pork Producers Council at its National Pork Industry Forum held in Kansas City, Mo.

Roth owns and operates Roth Feeder Pig Inc., managing a 3,000-head farrow-to-wean operation. His farm operation includes 1,200 acres of corn, oats and alfalfa, along with a black Angus herd.

In addition to serving on the NPPC board for the past eight years, Roth previously sat on the Wisconsin Pork Association board of directors and currently serves as chairman of the association's Swine Health Committee.

“AV’s long-standing service to the U.S. pork industry and diligent leadership is welcomed as he guides NPPC as president for the next year,” says NPPC CEO Neil Dierks. “With AV’s steady hand, NPPC remains well positioned to advocate for the public policy interests of America’s pork producers.”
