History of South Dakota Pork Producers Council

In November 1967, the organization changed their Articles of Incorporation and called the new association the South Dakota Pork Producers Council. The SDPPC was incorporated for the purpose of giving state direction to do all things possible to improve or increase the quality and production of the swine industry in South Dakota and throughout the U.S.
