Pork producers want to see an answer to California’s Proposition 12 in the new farm bill.

Duan Stateler, an Ohio producer and president-elect of the National Pork Producers Council (NPPC), says they want to avoid a patchwork of regulations across the country…

“I don’t think it’s good for our industry or any industry.”  He says, “If we had that with everybody’s industry, that would be a real mess for every entity, whether you were making toys or whatever it is.  Hopefully we can get something resolved that we can do away with this patchwork.”

NPPC CEO Bryan Humphreys tells Brownfield…

“A lot of opportunity there and a lot of allies across agriculture who understand the threat this brings, including Secretary Vilsack from USDA, recognizing the chaos that it could bring,” he says.
