The overarching purpose of the Northeast Pork Association (NEPA) is to provide producers in the northeast access to meaningful Pork Checkoff resources to help promote, support, and grow the pork industry. NEPA will provide easier access to National Pork Board professional staff, producer education opportunities in areas such as swine health, production, and nutrition, certification programs such as PQA Plus® , and increased engagement and input in Checkoff programming. The structure of NEPA includes a part-time executive director to represent you and your interests both locally and nationally. That being said, we want to hear from you! What services do you, as a pork producer, need? What educational events can we organize for you? We want your input to help shape our program of activities in the future!
