Between Giving Tuesday and Christmas, pig farmers are encouraged to participate in National Pork Board’s Hams Across America program.

It’s the perfect time of year for pig farmers to show their commitment to their community and to pay it forward by donating pork products to someone who deserves recognition or is in need.

JaNel Anderson, AMVC sow farm manager, and Javier Aradillas, AMVC Leadership Development Program employee, accepted the challenge to give a ham this holiday season.

The farm team decided to give hams to the Bowman and Scranton emergency services teams. AMVC is appreciative of having great emergency personnel in the local area.

During the holidays, it was a great time to support the swine industry and recognize these valuable services in the community.

AMVC Management Services, a diversified swine management company, manages NorDak, a breed-to-wean sow farm in Scranton. AMVC employees in two other states made similar ham donations.

The Hams Across America program was created in 2016 as an industry effort to honor the way pig farmers serve their communities year-round.
