Two more examples of National Pork Producers Council (NPPC) misuse of checkoff funds to influence the vote have been identified by hog farmer members of the Campaign for Family Farms.

Hog farmers state that NPPC's repeated misuse of checkoff funds to influence the checkoff vote demonstrated the lack of accountability of the checkoff. Also, hog farmers are calling on the Agricultural Marketing Service of U.S. Department of Agriculture to suspend checkoff spending until the final results of the referendum are posted.
