Pork Board Looking at 2011 Budget Priorities for Pork Checkoff

Pork Board Looking at 2011 Budget Priorities for Pork Checkoff

Approval of budget is a big part of the meeting.

During its meeting this week the National Pork Board is concentrating on the 2011 budget. National Pork Board Vice President Everett Forkner says input is taken from grassroots pork producers for the annual budget, which is usually the biggest item for the November meeting.

"We go back over all of the budgetary planning that was done back in September," Forkner said. "We fine tune anything that the board feels we need to so final approval of the budget is one of the big ones."

After monitoring economic forecasts Forkner says the budget is up over last year when the board had to cut the budget by 20% to 24%.

"We have come back strong and have been able to actually approve a budget similar to where we've been in the past," Forkner said. "Steve Meyer who we work closely with to help us give some projections on the amount of dollars we'll have feels very comfortable about where we are."
