Four pork farms have been selected to be recognized as the 2013 Pork Industry Environmental Stewards. This year’s awards will go to Russell Brothers LLC in Monticello, Iowa; Bacon Hill Farm in Dodge, Nebraska; Krikke Pork in Greenwich, Ohio; and Blue Mountain Farms in Milford, Utah. Pork Checkoff Environmental Stewards Selection Subcommittee Chair Lynn Harrison says the forward-thinking 2013 Stewards focus on innovative solutions and ideas on their farms. From turning manure into fuel to operate farm vehicles to generating enough power to light up to three-thousand homes – Harrison says the 2013 Stewards are putting their own stamp on raising high-quality pork for customers. Like other pork operations across the country – he says they’re doing it while adhering to the industry’s We Care ethical principles.
