industry. In addition,

fever (ASF) and other
foreign animal diseases
out of the country.
" Despite the impact
of COVID-19 on our
industry, we have strong
momentum in our favor.
Especially after the
successful launch of Real
Pork and AgView, " Noem
said. " The Checkoff
will continue to deliver
on these and other
priorities, identified in
the industry's annual
planning process, for the
common good of all pork
producers. "
