When you are busy on the farm, you may not have immediate access to essential information that could impact your operation. For example, disease outbreaks and other emergency situations can spread quickly. You need to know about what’s happening so you can take necessary steps to safeguard your operation.
To keep producers up to date on crisis or emergency situations on the national scope, the National Pork Board has developed an essential new service, Pork Crisis Alert, which is a texting program that will send information to your phone.
In a crisis, Pork Crisis Alert will send an automatic text to your phone with details on how you can access online and call-in resources and information. As a true emergency notification system, Pork Crisis Alerts will only be sent in the event of a true industry crisis or emergency situation. It will never be used for marketing or other communications.
