National Pork Producers Council (NPPC) Vice President Lois Britt died June 3 at her home in Mount Olive, NC.

Britt served as a special assistant to the president of Murphy Brown, LLC, and also owned a crop and cattle farm.

“Lois was a tireless advocate for the U.S. pork industry who will be sorely missed,” says NPPC President Don Buhl of Tyler, MN. “She leaves a remarkable legacy – a legacy that U.S. pork producers will benefit from for years to come.”

Britt also served as an industry leader with the North Carolina Pork Producers, North Carolina Soil and Water Conservation Federation, North Carolina Agricultural Advancement Consortium and the University of North Carolina Board of Governors.
