In a press release, the group says it believes that Mandatory Price Reporting should be extended for one-year.

"Pork producers need a transparent, accurate and timely market price reporting system in order to make knowledge-based business decisions," said Jim Quackenbush, Chairman of NPPC's Competitive Markets Mandatory Price Reporting Work Group and a pork producer from Chokio, Minn.

"Mandatory Price Reporting makes markets more transparent and offers new market information with respect to pricing, contracting for purchase and supply and demand conditions for hogs, " he said. According to Quackenbush, a one-year price extension of the Mandatory Price Reporting provision would enable continued work amongst the various industry stakeholders in developing a cohesive set of recommendations for system improvement.
