U.S. Senate and House members have requested the U.S. Department of Agriculture to provide assistance to U.S. pork producers to help them out of an economic crisis they’ve faced for two years.

Twenty-four senators and 63 representatives asked in separate letters sent to Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack that U.S.D.A. do the following to provide emergency relief to the U.S. pork industry: buy $100 million of pork with funds from the Section 32 program, collaborate with other federal agencies to help address swine disease surveillance on farms, related diagnostic and vaccine development and swine industry support and work with the U.S. Trade Representative to open export markets to U.S. pork.
