President Dick Kuecker explained to nearly 25 club members that all participants in the "Nickels For Profit" program will forward 5? from the sale of each hog to the National Pork Producers Council. The total amount received by the council will be spent to upgrade the public image of pork through better inspection and quality control. All hog buying stations are being contacted by the producers and will be asked to aid in the bookkeeping required.
