Pork Salute: Wilson never thought pork industry would be what it has become

Todd Wilson had no plans to work with hogs after graduation from Iowa State University. Now, 33 years later, Wilson continues to work with the hog industry – first with Murphy Farms and then when it became Smithfield.

“It has been exciting, always a challenge, a lot of change and fun,” Wilson said. “It may seem like a cliché but the people I’ve worked with through those years have been great.”

Wilson is the Grower Development Manager for Smithfield Hog Production Midwest Region. His responsibility is to handle the contract relationships with growers in Iowa, South Dakota, Missouri, specifically Nevada, Mo. and Oklahoma.
