Twitter can be an impressive and effective addition to the animal advocacy toolbox, uniting producers and giving consumers insights into the lives of pork producers.

Each week we look at the top five #RealPigFarming tweets of the week, featuring everything from a look at the next generation of producers to a great video highlighting Erin Brenneman and Thomas Titus, two pork producers recently named the USFRA’s “Faces of Farming and Ranching” winners.

Check out the list below for some of the week’s #RealPigFarming 140-word musings and follow us on Twitter at @PorkNetwork.
