#HamsAcrossAmerica

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The Pork Checkoff is encouraging pig farmers to pay-it-forward with a new holiday campaign called #HamsAcrossAmerica. This first-annual event encourages farmers and others involved in the pork industry to show their appreciation for friends, family and neighbors through the gift of ham —  in the form of gifts or donations of ham or ham-based products.“For pig farmers, volunteering at community events and participating in local fundraisers, has always been a part of what makes us who we are,” said Brad Greenway, 2016 America’s Pig Farmer of the Year, from Mitchell, South Dakota. “Hams Across America allows farmers to not only live the We Care ethical principles, but also share their love of the product that they produce.”Pig farmers are encouraged to extend Giving Tuesday through Dec. 23 with Hams Across America by simply purchasing a gift of ham and paying-it-forward. Participants are also encouraged to share their pay-it-forward stories on social media using #RealPigFarming and #HamsAcrossAmerica.last_img read more

Fernandez was promoted to chief trainer when Pacquiao clashed with Argentina’s Lucas Matthysse last year, but the rehiring of Roach for the Broner bout has obviously put his best buddy in the back seat again.Pacquiao, though, was quick to dismiss this, saying that his team is stronger than ever.“We know each other very well. Team Pacquiao is strong,” said Pacquiao when somebody asked why he rehired Roach for the Jan. 19 fight despite dropping him following a disastrous loss to Jeff Horn in 2017.Pacquiao said he wanted to give Fernandez a chance to become the head trainer for the fight against Matthysse. And Fernandez passed with flying colors as Pacquiao scored his first knockout win in nine years to revive his career.Roach said he was willing to yield the reins to Fernandez, who was his lieutenant in so many triumphs.ADVERTISEMENT Even his rumored bid for the Philippine presidency is far from his mind at the moment.Buboy Fernandez, Pacquiao’s best friend, sat in the far corner of the crowded Wild Card Gym while Freddie Roach held the mitts for the world’s one and only eight-division champion.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSUrgent reply from Philippine ‍football chiefSPORTSWin or don’t eat: the Philippines’ poverty-driven, world-beating pool starsClearly, something is wrong.And when Pacquiao noticed this, he asked Fernandez to join them in the ring, although the Hall-of-Fame trainer Roach continued holding the mitts.

We will work on that, we have worked together as a team.”Meanwhile, Pacquiao played down reports linking him to a bid for the presidency, insisting he remained solely focused on the twilight of his boxing career.The 40-year-old, already a member of the Philippine Senate, has been repeatedly linked to a future run for the presidency in his homeland where he remains a national hero.However, Pacquiao told reporters on Wednesday he had put any future political aspirations on hold as he prepares to defend his World Boxing Association (WBA) regular welterweight title against Broner at MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas.“A lot of people are saying that I can be the next president,” Pacquiao told Agence France-Presse.“But I’m not thinking about that. Whatever path that God gives to me, I will fulfill it.”“I haven’t spoken to him about running for president but he wants to help the people and the best way to help people is to be the boss,” Roach told reporters.For the time being though, Pacquiao insists he is not looking past Broner.Broner on Wednesday put a touch of drama to his upcoming fight with Pacquiao by not showing up for media workout day.Broner, the 29-year-old nicknamed “The Problem,” flew over from South Beach, Florida, where he had his training camp. —WITH A REPORT FROM AFP SEA Games hosting troubles anger Duterte Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles02:11’Not just basketball’: Circumcisions, pageants at Philippine courts00:50Trending Articles02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Games02:11Trump awards medals to Jon Voight, Alison Krauss Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Private companies step in to help SEA Games hosting LOOK: Joyce Pring goes public with engagement to Juancho Triviño SEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completion Manny Pacquiao, right, works out with trainer Freddie Roach at a boxing club in Los Angeles, Wednesday, Jan. 9, 2019.
