Pork producers appreciate Spot Market Hog Pandemic Program funding

A funding change is allowing USDA to start making full payments to hog producers under a pandemic relief program.

Keri Retalick with the Wisconsin Pork Producers Association tells Brownfield this is very good news for producers. “They took a pretty big hit during that time period of April through September of 2020 during the pandemic, when the market prices went down and/or we had producers that were almost to the brink of having to euthanize animals.”

Retallick says the past few years have been a difficult time for pork producers.
