Plan to attend Pork Congress

It promises to be fun and a great opportunity to learn

For more than four decades, the Iowa Pork Producers Association’s Iowa Pork Congress has been an event where pork producers and assorted experts gather to share views and information about an industry that has long been vital to the Iowa economy.

The annual incarnation of this very popular gathering is in Des Moines at the Iowa Events Center Jan. 24 and 25. Organizers say it is the nation’s largest winter swine trade show and conference.

Once again this year, the show will feature an impressive roster of speakers and an appealing array of exhibitors. There will be in the neighborhood of 300 trade-show booths according to the IPPA. Farm News, The Messenger’s sister publication, will have a booth at the show. It is expected that many of the exhibitors will be introducing new products or services at this year’s show.

The appeal of this event is in part its educational component.

IPPA President Curtis Meier, a hog farmer from Clarinda, is enthusiastic about the diverse appeal of the show and the seminars and demonstrations that will be featured.

“Pork Congress has something for everyone and it’s our hope that attendees will join us and take advantage of the available opportunities,” he said.

Make plans now to attend what promises to be a super event.

You won’t be disappointed.
