Farm bill funding is a concern of the National Pork Producers Council. 

NPPC science and technology counsel Andrew Bailey calls the fiscal environment challenging as a split congress negotiates the next farm bill.

“And with the new cut-go rules and things like that, any increase for us means a decrease for someone else.”

Speaking to Brownfield at the World Pork Expo in Des Moines Thursday, he said strengthening and expanding the national animal vaccine bank, disease preparedness and response program, and the animal health lab network are fundamental to preventing and preparing for a foreign animal disease outbreak.
