RAY STARLING APPOINTED SPECIAL ASS'T TO THE PRESIDENT FOR AGRICULTURE, TRADE & FOOD AID
Source: National Pork Producers Council (NPPC) news release

Filling a position left vacant for most of the Obama administration, the National Pork Producers Council applauds today's White House appointment of Ray Starling to the position of Special Assistant to the President for Agriculture, Trade and Food Aid. Starling currently serves as chief of staff for Senator Thom Tillis, R-N.C. The following statement can be attributed to John Weber, president of the National Pork Producers Council.

"By picking a true champion of American agriculture to serve in this key advisory role, President Trump is sending a clear signal of his commitment to reverse unnecessary regulations inhibiting pork producers and all U.S. farmers from doing what they do best: supplying the world with the most nutritious, affordable and abundant food available.

"Growing up raising hogs on a farm in North Carolina that his family continues to operate today, Ray's long, distinguished career in agriculture policy has always been informed by a deep understanding of pork producers and a sector so vital to our economy and national security. We look forward to working with Ray and the Trump administration to address the needs of rural America."

John Weber is a pork producer from Dysart, Iowa.

NPPC is the global voice for the U.S. pork industry, protecting the livelihoods of America's 60,000 pork producers, who abide by ethical principles in caring for their animals, in protecting the environment and public health and in providing safe, wholesome, nutritious pork products to consumers worldwide.
