National Pork Producers Council (NPPC) reports:

Des Moines, IA - Jen Sorenson, communications director for Iowa Select Farms in West Des Moines, Iowa, was elected Wednesday as president of the National Pork Producers Council (NPPC) at its National Pork Industry Forum.

For the past decade, Sorenson has been with Iowa Select Farms, an Iowa farming business that markets more than five million hogs per year. Additionally, she manages activities of the Deb and Jeff Hansen Foundation, which operates programs and projects that provide food to struggling Iowa families and children, shows gratitude to members of the Armed Forces and strengthens efforts to find a cure for childhood cancers, while improving the quality of life for impacted families.

Sorenson grew up on a livestock farm, raising pigs and row crops. After receiving degrees in animal science and journalism from Iowa State University, she worked in communications for several organizations, including Christensen Farms, McCormick Company and the Iowa Pork Producers Association.

In addition to serving on NPPC's board, Sorenson chairs NPPC's Labor Security Task Force, and sits on the board of the Iowa Pork Producers Association.

In 2018, Sorenson was awarded the Outstanding Young Professional Alumni award from Iowa State University's College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.

"Jen's dual background in both farming and communications will be a significant asset to the U.S. pork industry as she begins her tenure as president," said NPPC CEO Neil Dierks. "With Jen's experience, NPPC remains well positioned to advocate for the public policy interests of America's pork producers."
