One of the farmers attending the Summit was pork producer Chuck Wildman who farms near South Charleston, Ohio.

“I think it does me a lot of good as a producer to sit in the room with the generic consumer and start to understand some of their hot button issues, even if I don’t agree with them,” said Wildman. “I think it’s an excellent event.”
