Plan to attend Pork Congress

By Staff | Jan 22, 2016

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 in Hy-Vee Hall at the Iowa Events Center and Community Choice Credit Union Convention Center Wednesday and Thursday. 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. 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 David Struthers, a pig farmer from Collings, is enthusiastic about the diverse appeal of the show and the seminars and demonstrations that will be featured.

“One has to merely look at the list of seminars and exhibitors to know this is ‘the show’ and why Iowa Pork Congress draws from such a wide area of the country,” said Struthers. “IPPA works hard each year to keep the show informative, educational and valuable for attendees.”

Make plans now to attend what promises to be a super event. You won’t be disappointed.
