FARM BILL, ENERGY POLICY, ANTIBIOTICS TOP PRIORITIES FOR PORK PRODUCERS
BrownfieldAgNews reports:

When it comes to priority issues, Chris Wall, Assistant Vice President, Domestic Public Policy for the National Pork Producers Council (NPPC) says behind getting the Farm Bill passed and energy policy, antibiotics will be a top priority issue in 2013.

"There's going to be a vehicle moving through Congress this year that will allow our detractors a place to play mischief with antibiotic usage, so we're going to have to do a lot of education, a lot of work on that front as well," Wall said.

Adding to the challenge, Wall adds is the fact that the education and work necessary will take place in committees not all that familiar to agriculture.

"Because it is an FDA related activity, we're going to out of our comfort zone a little bit, but it's going to be incumbent on us to nurture and foster those relationships and again it's all about education," said Wall. "Educating these members on the importance of tools that producers have to raise livestock."
