A Fayette area pork producer will talk about the Ohio pork industry at the Fayette Lions Club meeting Tuesday, April 28. Kevin Kessler is scheduled as the guest speaker when the Lions meet at 6:30 p.m.
Titled “The Pork Industry: More Than Just the Other White Meat,” the speech by Kessler will showcase the industry’s rural economic impact plus on-going programs to enhance the nutritional quality of pork, to protect the environment and to treat livestock humanely. Due to new technologies and management systems, U.S. pork producers have trimmed pork’s fat content 31 percent since 1983.
“Like other industries facing strong competitive pressures,” Kessler said, “we’re working to constantly improve our ability to provide tasty, affordable and nutritious pork products in a responsible manner. I’d like to thank the Fayette Lions Club for giving me an opportunity to discuss how pork producers are providing quality pork products, benefiting the local economy and being responsible neighbors.”
