Meier to return as IPPA president

     A long-time Page County pork, beef and grain farmer has embarked on his second one-year term as president of the Iowa Pork Producers Association.

     Curtis Meier of Clarinda received the president’s gavel from 2016 president Al Wulfekuhle of Quasqueton at the conclusion of IPPA’s annual meeting in Des Moines on Jan. 24. Meier is believed to be the first two-time president in the association’s 82-year history. He first served in the role in 2003.

     “It’s a great opportunity, not one I really asked for, but things just fell in place,” Meier said. “I never dreamed I’d have another chance at it. We have a strong and knowledgeable board of directors and I look forward to working with the board in the coming year to address the issues, achieve our goals and improve the success of the state’s producers.”

     Meier and the IPPA Board of Directors will be focused on trade, the Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory at Iowa State University and conservation.
