FREE Agri-Pulse webinar: How pork exports can save your bacon

October 29, 2020 Noon to 1 pm EST

With COVID-19 disrupting millions of lives and the ability to process protein, thousands of pork producers were forced to pivot to an unprecedented new reality in 2020. But as producers worked their way through all of the volatility, one thing became clear: international exports became even more important to producer profitability. “Some might wonder why U.S. producers are working to expand exports when the domestic supply chain was so disrupted this year,” said Agri-Pulse Editor Sara Wyant. “But when you look at the types of products that are exported plus the factors that enable producers to stay in business, it’s a much more complex conversation.” Agri-Pulse plans to explore these topics and more during a free one-hour webinar Oct. 29, from noon to 1 pm EST. The webinar is sponsored by the National Pork Board.
