The leadership of the Nebraska Pork Producers Association (NPPA) engages in several key communication tools to effectively communicate its story. The ongoing mission to inform and educate producers, consumers, teachers, students and key stakeholders at the city, county, state, and federal levels is paramount to the success of our industry.  


NPPA’s Executive Director Al Juhnke takes an active role in the on-going dialog with other commodity groups, agricultural professionals and individuals with legislative impact. Bill Luckey of Columbus and Russ Vering of Howell are elected members on the National Pork Board and National Pork Producers Council respectively, making sure Nebraska’s producers are linked to the national pork organizations.    


NPPA’s Pork Talk bimonthly magazine delivers program updates and educational opportunitieshighlights the supports of our Allied Members and provides further information for producers.  


Hosted by KTIC Farm Director Chad Moyer, the Pork Industry Report broadcasts weekly radio interviews providing up-to-date coverage with industry leaders on educational events, regulations, market trends and other state and national issues. Throughout the year, the Monday morning segments of KOLN/KGIN’s Pure Nebraska features representatives of the pork industryin partnership with The Alliance for the Future of Agriculture in Nebraska (AFAN).
