Welcome to the Arkansas Pork Producers website!

The Arkansas Pork Producers Association is made up of a progressive group of pork producers that are setting policy and direction on the future of the pork industry in Arkansas. I would like to encourage you to show your support for the association by becoming a 2015 Member.

If you make your living from pork production, the Arkansas Pork Producers Association is working for you. If you are an owner/operator, a farm employee, or a company employee, the APPA is working to make sure you have a future in pork production in our state.

The Arkansas Pork Producers Association represents the interests of pork production across the state. Your membership allows the APPA to conduct association activities, carry out grass roots efforts, and maintain a relationship with policy makers.

Your membership shows continued support of the industry and provides a vital source of revenue for the association. While checkoff dollars are collected on all hogs sold in the state, these funds can only be used for promotion, research, and education activities.

Issues facing pork production today are more complex than ever. Producers are facing increased regulations, while under the scrutiny from a public unfamiliar with modern pork production practices. With this in mind, the APPA has an increased challenge in sharing our message with the public and with policy makers at all levels of government. 

Your membership increases the strength of the pork industry in Little Rock and Washington D.C. The more members the APPA has, the stronger our voice. Your membership helps to fund activities essential to inform, educate and lobby our lawmakers.
