During the National Pork Industry Forum, National Pork Board President Steve Rommereim was asked about the top issue facing pig farmers. “The main one right now is the threat of African Swine Fever getting across our borders.” Another member of the National Pork Board, Todd Erickson, said it is important for producers to be involved in their industry. “Look at your local boards and state boards, volunteer on committees; it is important for us to tell our story.” Rommereim farms at Alcester, South Dakota and Erickson is based at Northwood, North Dakota.
