The National Pork Producers Council’s (NPPC) new blog, “Hogs on the Hill,” launches today.

“Hogs on the Hill” opens up another means of communicating issues of importance to U.S. pork producers.

NPPC says it also serves as a way to bypass media gatekeepers who have not been very responsive to NPPC’s rebuttals to editorials and stories critical of the U.S. pork industry.

Visit the new blog site by going to, “The Voice of the U.S. Pork Industry with a Swine’s Eye View.”

Blog posts will include comments on NPPC issues, commentary on current issues, rebuttals to negative editorials and articles and blurbs on items of interest to producers including the quarterly Hogs & Pigs Report.

Visitors can also provide comments in response to the posts, says NPPC.
