Colorado Pork Producers Election
Colorado Pork Producers prepare to elect delegates to the 2021 National Pork Producers Council.
Colorado Pork Executive Director Joyce Kelly says any producer, of age, who is a resident of the state and has paid all assessments due is eligible.
Kelly: “The delegates look at business that is important to how the check off is run. Because it is a check off-centered election, delegates have to be at least 18 and have to be actively producing pork or representative of a group that is actively producing pork.
She says producers are encouraged to bring with them a sales receipt proving that hogs were sold in their name and the checkoff deducted.
Check off funds paid by producers are used for promotion of pork from the state as well as education and research according to the Colorado Pork Producers. CPPC also support the Junior Swine Association, swine exhibitors at county and state fairs and education for young and new producers.
The election of pork producer delegate candidates for the 2021 National Pork Producers (Pork Act) Delegate Body will take place at 9:00 am February 24 in conjunction with the 2020 annual meeting of Colorado Pork Producers Council. The meeting will be at the Morgan County Fairgrounds in Brush.
