Shauna 1

Welcome to Shauna Kill of Morris, MN, as the SDPPC summer intern!  She grew up on her family’s feedlot cattle and grain operation near Morris, and was active in FFA and 4-H.  Shauna will be a Senior at SDSU, majoring in Agricultural Education, and this fall will be student teaching in Sleepy Eye, MN.

At SDPPC, Shauna will continue to promote the pork industry by assisting to plan promotion events, and developing an electronic mailing system to more efficiently contact producers and committee members. She had the opportunity to spend three days in Des Moines at the World Pork Expo for the training of the State Interns and Ambassadors. Shauna is excited to work with the excellent staff at SDPPC and learn much more about the pork industry during her internship.

Welcome!

Become a member of the SD Master Pork Producers and get involved!

The SD Master Pork Producers Association is made up of Allied Industry Individuals whose goal is to recognize outstanding South Dakota Pork Producers and to promote the South Dakota Swine Industry in a positive manner.

SD Master Pork Producer’s have been very active for over 45 years in promoting the swine industry and plan to continue that tradition for many years to come.  Annually, we select and recognize outstanding SD Master Pork Producer winners, which are recognized at the SD Master Pork Producer Banquet during the SDPPC Pork Congress.  The MPPA Banquet along with our Annual Pork Chop Open has helped us raise more than $100,000 in funds that go toward scholarships at SDSU for students interested in swine production.  We also have been able donate thousands of pounds of pork to The Banquet, an organization which provides meals for the less fortunate, and pork certificates to families of deployed military during the holidays.

Here is how you or your organization can become a member of the SD Master Pork Producers Association:
