Pork Industry Leaders Share Urgent Messages at Fall Fly-in

From engaging speakers to "Baconfest" in the Great Hall of the Library of Congress, it was an exciting week for more than 100 pork producers from around the country who gathered for the the National Pork Producers Council’s (NPPC) Spring Legislative Action Conference (LAC) on September 13-14 in Washington, D.C.
