Neil Dierks Talks New Rules, Line-Speed Rollbacks and California’s Proposition 12

Neil Dierks Talks New Rules, Line-Speed Rollbacks and California’s Proposition 12 Last week, Ron Hays caught up with Neil Dierks, CEO of the National Pork Producers Council, to talk about recent blows to the pork industry by the Biden administration, as roll backs of key policies begin.

Recently, the new administration announced three new rulemakings - a definition of unjust business practices, one that will affect the poultry industry and a last one, that will define injury to competition under the Packers and Stockyards Act.

“They will propose rules, then we’ll know more of what exactly is being (looked at,)” Dierks said.

The administration is working to replace, what Dierks thinks were level-headed rules that the Trump administration put in place less than a year ago. One of the changes looks to be a removal of the concept of having to prove injury, which is also worrying beef producers.

“Pork producers are included in the Packing and Stockyards Act,” Dierks said. “We have to deal with this from the marketing side and the production-contract side.”

Dierks said, as the conversation continues, everyone seems to be more informed. Ultimately, it is an interesting time for pork producers, according to Dierks.
