Executive Vice President's Message

Members & Visitors,


Thank you so much for visiting the website for PennAg Industries Association! All of us at PennAg, our board, staff and more than 500 agribusiness and farm members are proud of this organization, its history and its relevant mission for today’s complex world. The issues we address are complicated and our place at the table is important.


For our members, it’s our goal to be relevant in the everyday operations of your farms and business. We want to be a resource and a tool to help make you more competitive and forever sustainable. Our hope is to provide information, training, guidance and especially leadership in Harrisburg.


As a visitor to our website, you may disagree with an issue or practice that a PennAg member or industry represents. We have agreed to disagree with some of the most prominent animal, environmental and human rights organizations in the world. This has not been a bad thing. What we have learned from these organizations is that there is often common ground that, if established, will make our world a better place.


At PennAg Industries Association we are all about finding solutions to the problems that face our industry, state, nation and world. We are serious about addressing issues. We are not interested in shifting blame, pointing fingers, or misleading the public with inaccurate information or propaganda. We are willing to work with anyone who is serious about creating solutions.


Welcome to our website. Please call on us if we can be helpful.

PennAg welcomes you! As your PennAg President for 2019-2020, I would like to thank each and every one of you who supported and attended the Annual Banquet in February and the 141st Annual Business Meeting in Manheim, Pa. in April. These events served as a great way to commemorate a blessed year and celebrate with fellow representatives in the industry!
The board members and staff of PennAg is an excellent group of individuals who are working together for you. There are nearly 500 member companies and affiliates that comprise the independent councils and committees, with a dedicated staff person representing each one.
As an organization, we work to continue building relationships with all those involved in agricultural decision making in Harrisburg, local municipalities, and other groups that can affect our agribusinesses. Together we will work to create and maintain an effective, viable and competitive environment for Pennsylvania agribusinesses to grow and prosper.
Animal disease control and prevention, healthcare, transportation and workforce issues continue to be prevalent on PennAg's agenda. There are plenty of issues that will affect your business and as the leaders of PennAg, it is our commitment to continue to be a valuable resource to you throughout the year.
Please take advantage of the opportunities to have your voice heard. PennAg hosts a variety of seminars, workshops and meetings for you. Also, there are currently eight PennAg Councils and other Committees that hold meetings throughout the year. We look to provide members with the best and most up-to-date information possible so you can continue striving for excellence in the industry. I encourage you to attend meetings and events as participation is key to a valuable membership experience.
