National Pork Board President Terry O’Neel says the swine industry has been one of the few agricultural commodities seeing profits…

O’Neel, who raises hogs at Friend, Nebraska, says the Pork Checkoff is beginning the New Year with a new business-to-business marketing strategy…

O’Neel says this new marketing strategy will be more targeted, which will also enhance efficiency.
