Pork Checkoff releases three YouTube videos
US Pork Checkoff recently released three new videos on YouTube to answer consumers'
questions about animal care, feeding, transport and more, the National
Pork Board (NPB) announced.
The videos, which run one to two minutes each, feature pork producers and
industry experts answering consumer questions on animal care issues. They
include "Pig Farmers Take Action", which focuses on animal health and
well-being, including Pork Quality Assurance Plus, "Ride Along with a
Pig", which shows why transportation is an important issue for pork
producers, and "Pigs Are Hungry, Too" which addresses pigs' nutritional
needs and requirements for optimum care.
Power of the Internet
humane society of the United States internet videos of non-ambulatory cattle
demonstrates again the power of the Internet. "Sites like YouTube allow messages
to spread around the world faster than you can blink," says Steve Weaver, vice
president of the National Pork Board.
staff has been working diligently the past two years to learn everything about
these so-called 'social media' vehicles - including blogs, podcasts and video
blogs - so the pork industry can tell its story in ways that reach the growing
number of people using these new communications tools and allow students and
consumers to learn the truth about modern pork production.
