IPPA honors 81st class of Master Pork Producers

Iowa's Master Pork Producers for 2022 were revealed last week at the 2023 Iowa Pork Congress banquet in Des Moines. The Iowa Pork Producers Association and Iowa State University Extension co-sponsor the program. 
A Master Pork Producer award denotes an individual's or family's excellence in pork production, as measured by their pork production statistics, their commitment to We Care principles, and their contribution to their community. The We Care principles outline a pig farmer's responsibilities to uphold high standards for animal well-being, food safety, the environment, as well as support of their local community. 
IPPA's 81s class of Master Pork Producers are:

  • Chris and BreeAnn Bohnenkamp, Remsen
  • Steve and Lisa Thul, Bode 
  • Mark Schleisman, Lake City 
  • Brad and Donell Nagel and Matt and Kate Nagel, Little Rock 
  • Nate and Melissa Moretz, Kensett 
  • Steve Doeden, Cleghorn 
  • Ben Bader, Jesup  

IPPA started the Master Pork Producer Award program in 1942 and has now named 1,506 Iowa pig farming businesses as Master Pork Producers.
