Staff at the Iowa-based National Pork Board are getting used to a new way of operating. The fight over the pork checkoff resulted in a settlement agreement that forced the Pork Board to sever ties with the National Pork Producers Council. The split began July 1st and Pork Board President John Kellogg says it sets the groups that once worked together onto two separate missions.The Pork Board will carry out the promotion of the industry, while the N-P-P-C will work on legislative and regulatory issues. Kellogg says the Pork Board based in Des Moines is adjusting to the change.He says they want to continue doing what’s best to promote the pork industry.Kellogg says the Pork Board has 83 people at its headquarters in Des Moines, and 43 million dollars in checkoff money to spend on pork promotion.
