November 7, 2014
Emily Metz Meredith (pictured), vice president of communications and membership for the Animal Agriculture Alliance, will join NMPF later this month as vice president of animal care. She replaces Betsy Flores, who left for a position at the U.S. Department of Agriculture in mid-October.
Meredith will have primary responsibility for NMPF’s animal care program, Farmers Assuring Responsible Management. “Emily is very well equipped to take the program forward, building support among producers while also educating processors, retailers, food service, media and others,” said NMPF President and CEO Jim Mulhern. “We are very pleased to add her expertise to help address the important issue of animal care on behalf of our members.”
