Environmental Impact

Sustainability on the farm is an ongoing commitment by pig farmers today.

Farmers are committed, through ongoing environmental sustainability efforts, to safeguard natural resources for future generations. Over the last decade, the U.S. has played a leading role in advancing animal agriculture’s environmental and conservation efforts. Respect for the earth and its natural resources is part of our nation’s agricultural heritage — and America’s pork producers are dedicated to preserving that legacy. Long-term efforts are helping farmers raise more pork using fewer natural resources than ever before. They are also using new technologies to make their farms more sustainable than ever before.
