The National Pork Board honored four farm families with the 2011 Pork Industry Environmental Stewards Award during the annual National Pork Industry Forum. The award recognizes producers who demonstrate a firm commitment to safeguarding the environment and their local communities.
The 2011 award recipients are: Golden Circle Pork – Woodward, Iowa: John M. Langdon Farms – Benson, North Carolina: Wuebker Farms – Versailles, Ohio; Cleveland Pork – Elysburg, Pennsylvania.
