National Pork Producers Council (NPPC) announced that it has added Josh Scramlin to its Des Moines, Iowa, office team. Scramlin, who started last week as regional manager of producer services for Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio, most recently was with the Mid-West Farm Report in Wisconsin, where he produced daily agricultural updates for the 26-station radio network.
In his new position, Scramlin will work with the Indiana, Michigan and Ohio state pork organizations to recruit pork producers to and retain producers already in the NPPC Strategic Investment Program (SIP). NPPC is excited to welcome Josh to the team.
Scramlin, who grew up on a farm in Michigan, graduated from Central Michigan University in 2018 with a bachelor’s in broadcast and cinematic arts. He has worked for media entities all over the country, including SiriusXM as a producer on The Highway. However, he returned to his roots in agriculture, becoming an agribusiness reporter for The Mid-West Farm Report. It was during his work with producers and getting back onto farms that he decided he wanted to continue a career within agribusiness. This ultimately led him to his new role with NPPC.
