The Kentucky Pork Producers Association has appointed a new CEO to succeed Mike Ovesen, who died earlier this month.
Bonnie Jolly, who served as secretary for 20 years, now heads the Elizabethtown-based group, which is a liaison between producers and government agencies.
The 58-year-old Sonora woman said the KPPA will continue to make sure farmers’ voices are heard in all the right places, including Frankfort.
One issue is that hog producers are under attack by some animal rights activists. Jolly said there is no advantage for them to abuse animals.
