Congressman Steve King (R-IA) announces that he will be participating in a press conference Wednesday, at the invitation of House Agriculture Committee Chairman Collin Peterson (D-MN), focusing on the ongoing COVID-19 pork processing crisis. The press conference will occur at 1 p.m., and it will take place at the Worthington Airport, Freese Hangar located in Worthington, Minnesota at 1698 Airport Road.  The spread of the COVID-19 virus has resulted in the temporary closure of several processing plants in the Midwest, and producers have been left with no recourse but to begin euthanizing healthy hogs. It is expected that the press conference will focus on the importance of a strong federal response to this pork processing crisis, including increased assistance to impacted farmers.
