Sustainability Position of US Pork Compared to Pork of Other Origins

The National Pork Board is soliciting proposals that will produce science- and data-driven performance information on how U.S. pork production performs on sustainability parameters.

The U.S. pork industry has a strong sustainability story, and it should be a strong brand attribute for U.S. pork in international markets. For importers that can source pork from multiple origins, the ability to showcase how and where U.S. pork excels in this forum would be powerful for developed markets who are evaluating production practices and sustainability in their purchasing decision-making process.

Funding Amount: There is an upper limit of $750,000 for the project period of one year (2023).

Due Date: All proposals for this program are due Oct. 22, 2022.

Proposal Format: All proposals submitted for NPB consideration must follow NPB’s standard research proposal requirements. Proposals that follow the correct format and meet the requirements will be reviewed favorably.

A Systems Approach to Understanding the Nutrient Cycle Across the Pork Ecosystem

The National Pork Board is soliciting proposals from investigators to fill gaps in knowledge that will enable a systems approach to understanding nutrient flow in pork’s ecosystem.

A comprehensive understanding of how nutrient (C, N, P, K, S, Zn, Cu, Mn) transfer — from pigs, to manure, to soil, to grain crops in turn used for pig feed — is necessary to determine where nutrient use efficiencies can be optimized.

Proposals from individual investigators or a coalition of investigators across multiple disciplines, geographies and institutions will be accepted.

Funding Amount: There is an upper limit of $1,000,000 for the entire project period of up to 4 years.

Due Date: All proposals for this program are due Oct. 4, 2022.

Proposal Format: All proposals submitted for NPB consideration must follow NPB’s standard research proposal requirements. Proposals that follow the correct format and meet the requirements will be reviewed favorably.
