The World Pork Expo kicks off Wednesday at the Iowa State Fairgrounds in Des Moines. The three-day event features the world’s largest swine focused trade show, free educational seminars for producers and consumers, a swine breed show, and many other activities. Pre-registrations are up over past years and participants from over 32 different countries will attend. Alicia Newman, General Manager of the World Pork Expo says a highlight is the quest for the world’s largest pork burger.
Newman says they’re also working with the National Swine Registry to take the necessary precautions to prevent spread of the PED virus during the breed shows.
