Jill Resler worked with the Minnesota Pork Producers Association for 13 years before being promoted. “I’ve had the chance to work beside tremendous producer and staff leaders.” MPPA will focus on three key objectives in the next 90 days. “We’ll focus on building relationships across all stakeholders internally and externally. We’ll also be focused on animal disease preparedness. We’re working across state lines and with the USDA and in Minnesota. Finally, we’ll focus on sustainability.” To fill Resler’s former job as the chief operating officer, there will be internal restructuring. Resler says there could be new additions to the team to line up current skill sets with producer-set priorities.
