Pork industry committed to helping farmers with sustainable practices

Focus is on sustainability at the farm level and bringing the money back to the farmer.

August 20, 2023

Farmers in 20 states can now enroll in cost-share programs through Farmers for Soil Health. This corn, pork and soy commodity initiative, in partnership with the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation and USDA’s Partnerships for Climate-Smart Commodities, establishes financial and technical assistance for corn and soybean farmers who adopt cover crops. The focus is to bring money directly back to farmers, where sustainability is happening at the farm level. Ben West, Executive Director of the Farmers for Soil Health, joins us to tell us more about how hog producers can contribute to the pork industry's sustainability goal.
