first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The National Pork Board, the U.S. Meat Export Federation (USMEF) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced that they will engage in a foresight-based marketing study called Pork 2040. The study will investigate changing consumer attitudes and trends in developed and emerging U.S. pork export markets in 17 defined countries.“Previous international marketing studies centered only on quantitative statistics to define demand, production and market access,” said Bill Luckey, chair of the Checkoff’s International Marketing committee and a pork producer from Columbus, Nebraska. “This unique effort will be more comprehensive, investigating the relevant qualitative factors that shape consumer opinion and hence markets. The study will focus on forecasting the pork and pork-product demand landscape over the next several decades to help determine where best to invest our limited Checkoff resources.”In addition to analyzing linear consumer trends, the Pork 2040 research will assess trends in the development of new production and marketing technologies, as well as in growing environmental concerns and in emerging legal, trade and regulatory regimes around the globe.“Comprehensive research is vital to our international marketing planning and forecasting in order to stay ahead of the curve,” Luckey said. “We must take proactive steps to market products in both current and emerging markets well into the future.”China, which has a growing and increasingly urban population base, will be the first country studied through the Pork 2040 lens. A research platform will be developed to enable the U.S. pork industry to design and implement a long-term strategy for U.S. pork consumption in China and to add context to one of the most critical export markets.“By forecasting where pork and pork product demand is heading in China, the Pork Checkoff and its partners can return value to U.S. pig farmers through a defined and united focus on growing export demand,” said Craig Morris, vice president of international marketing for the Pork Checkoff.The Emerging Markets Program will provide initial funding for the project. This funding will enable teams of experts to assess consumer trends, attitudes and behaviors that influence China’s food system needs and the subsequent ability to increase U.S. exports into the region.“Pork 2040 will help decision-makers in business, government and non-profit organizations understand and accommodate the myriad challenges facing our pork industry stakeholders,” Morris said. “Challenges routinely surface from ever-evolving factors that affect the global food system, and we need to be better informed about circumstances potentially within our control and influence.”Contractors interested in submitting proposals for this market should visit pork.to/2040rfp to download the request for proposals and submit their bid.3last_img read more

Miami’s class currently ranks No. 1 in the country by 247 Sports’ Team Rankings, but Donohue emphasized that Al Golden will need to notch plenty of wins next fall in order for those players currently pledged to The U to stay committed. Securing victories won’t be a problem for Miami in 2015, Cager says. @TDsTake oh we going to win they ain’t going nowhere— Lawrence Cager (@Uncle_Leroy3) February 11, 2015Hopefully Cager and the 2015 Miami team will be able to back up that confidence. The Hurricanes begin their campaign Sept. 5 against Bethune-Cookman.last_img read more

Ohio State mens lacrosse looking to simplify things against Marquette

OSU won, 11-7.Credit: Ryan Robey / For The LanternThe Ohio State men’s lacrosse team (0-2) is looking to turn things around.Following back-to-back overtime losses to start the season, the team is set to return to Columbus Saturday to take on the Marquette Golden Eagles.Coming away from Jacksonville, Fla., after falling to Massachusetts, 12-11, in overtime as part of the Moe’s Southwest Grill Classic, OSU coach Nick Myers said there is no time to hit the reset button.“Two tough losses, no doubt,” Myers said. “Coming up short is tough, but we are really just focused on the next task at hand which is Marquette on Saturday.”Marquette (1-1), which is in its second year as a Division I program, is coming off arguably its biggest win to date after knocking off Hofstra, 11-9, on the road in Hempstead, N.Y.OSU senior defenseman Joe Meurer said the Buckeyes have to focus on improving their communication in order to limit Marquette’s chances this weekend.“Obviously giving up 12 goals (in the loss to UMass) is not a staple of our defense, so we need to improve there,” Meurer said. “It’s just continuing to develop a chemistry on the defensive end and knowing when to slide.”One area that has been a concern early in the season for OSU — which also fell to Johns Hopkins, 10-9, Feb. 9 in triple overtime — has been its special teams, as they are 0-9 with the man-up advantage through two games. The early season struggles come after scoring 46 percent of the time in the same situation last season, good for fourth in the nation.“We have to simplify things,” Myers said. “We have gotten a number of different looks from different teams … it’s just settling into some basic different sets that we have, identifying areas that we think we can capitalize off of, and having an answer when we see different looks.”Another aspect that should be key for the Buckeyes throughout the rest of the season is evening up their faceoff percentage.Losing one of the best faceoff players in the country last season in Trey Wilkes (13th in the country at 58 percent), OSU has struggled to find a permanent replacement, going 13-51 against Johns Hopkins and UMass.“We are 25 percent at the X right now which isn’t stellar at all,” senior defenseman Dominic Imbordino said. “We definitely want to get that number up and get our offense the ball more, but right now we are trying to find an identity there and I think it’s going to turn around soon.”This is slated to be the second all-time meeting between the Buckeyes and the Golden Eagles as they met last year in Marquette’s first ever game as a Division I school, with OSU walking away with the 18-8 victory.Game time for the Buckeyes and the Golden Eagles is set for Saturday at noon at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center. read more
