usfra-wolfWe were saddened to hear of the sudden passing recently of Wisconsin pork producer and industry leader Doug Wolf, 61.

Wolf, who was past chairman of the National Pork Producers Council and served on the board of the U.S. Farmers and Ranchers Alliance (USFRA), was a partner in Wolf L&G Farms LLC, which he ran with his wife Kris and son Shannon and family. He also served the industry in a variety of other capacities.

“Doug Wolf was a warm and genuine man who represented America’s pork producers with grace and tenacity all over the globe,” said Jan Archer, National Pork Board president and a North Carolina pork producer. “We all owe Doug a huge debt of gratitude and will miss him terribly.”

It was a shock to hear of Doug’s passing, since we just interviewed him a few weeks ago for our I AM USFRA series. His niece contacted us by email over the weekend to get a copy of that interview so his wife could continue to hear his voice. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Wolf family and the entire agriculture industry as we mourn the loss of this wonderful farmer, husband, father and industry leader.
