Protecting Our Food Supply and Our Planet
Overview
 
 
1) COVID-19 and Our Food Supply
 
While our food supply was not in jeopardy, concerns remain over the impact of that supply interruption and what changes we may see going forward. 
 
2) Sustainable Farming
 
Meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.
 
3) Healthy Pigs = Healthy Food
  • Improved animal health and disease prevention 
  • Responsible Antibiotic Use 
  • FDA Safeguards
 
4) Healthy Food = Healthy Eating
  • USDA: Many cuts of fresh pork meet guidelines as lean
  • American Heart Assn. certified hearth healthy: pork tenderloin and sirloin roast
  • USDA: chops, roasts and tenderloins safe to eat at 145 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Pork is a complete protein and key source of nutrients for a balanced diet.
