The Indiana Pork annual meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, January 28 from 9:30 AM – 3 PM at the Indiana Pork office located at 5722 W. 74th Street, Indianapolis. The keynote speaker is Linda Chezem, J.D. and professor in the Department of Youth Development and Agricultural Education at Purdue University.
“We are excited to have Linda Chezem discussing public health issues and how they relate to agriculture. It is a topic that is rarely discussed but one that is impacting farmers at the local, state, and national levels. Our speaker will provide a unique perspective on these issues,” said Josh Trenary, executive director of Indiana Pork.
Also presenting at the meeting is Jarrod Sutton, assistant vice-president of channel marketing at National Pork Board. Sutton leads the industry’s effort to strengthen collaboration with food chain partners on behalf of the Pork Checkoff. Sutton will give a glimpse into the grocery and restaurant companies’ mindset as it relates to modern pork production.
In addition, the agenda includes the presentation of meritorious service awards as well as updates from association committees regarding projects and programming at Indiana Pork.
“Indiana Pork’s annual meeting is a great time for producers and industry representatives to join us to recognize the service of individuals who have donated their time to help our organization in the past. We want producers to come out, learn what is going on at Indiana Pork, and hopefully consider helping to direct our activities in the future by becoming an active part of the association,” said Trenary.
