The National Pork Producers Council (NPPC) elected new officers during the National Pork Industry Forum held last week in Kansas City, MO.

Producer Sam Carney, Adair, IA, is the new president. Doug Wolf, owner of Wolf L&G Farms, LLC in Lancaster, WI, becomes president-elect. Producer R.C. Hunt from Wilson, NC, assumes the vice president position.

Reelected to three-year terms on the producer board of directors were Hunt; Larry Liepold, Okabena, MN; and Randy Spronk, Edgerton, MN. Ron Prestage, DVM, Camden, SC, was elected to a three-year term. Al Deutsch, with AP Division of Grain Systems, Inc., was elected as NPPC’s allied industry representative.

“We have excellent leadership in Sam, Doug and R.C. and quality, dedicated industry representatives in the new board members who were elected,” says NPPC CEO Neil Dierks. “I know that all of them will work diligently and tirelessly on behalf of America’s pork producers.”

Producers Phil Borgic from Illinois and Ray Summerlin from North Carolina were elected for one-year terms to NPPC’s Nominating Committee, which reviews the credentials of candidates who serve on the board of directors.
