Hog industry supports new levy

The general manager of the Saskatchewan Pork Development Board says there is support from producer groups across Canada for a national agency such as the one serving the beef industry.

That's fine for him to say, but I wonder what hog farmers think.
Hearings were held by the national Farm Products Council last week into proposal the hog industry has made to set up a national agency with a mandatory checkoff on all market hogs.

The money would be used for research and market development.
