The dates are set for the 2015 World Pork Expo — June 3-5 — at the Iowa State Fairgrounds in Des Moines, Iowa. The World Pork Expo is brought to you by the National Pork Producers Council (NPPC) and presents a wide range of activities, including the world’s largest pork-specific trade show, educational seminars, and swine shows and sales.

A long list of free educational sessions are scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday where producers can get updates on issues that affect their businesses, learn about new production and management practices, and review the latest research. The business seminars and PORK Academy also will outline new technologies and business strategies, and offer opportunities for dialogue with experts.

Throughout the week, attendees will find live hogs on display in the swine barn. Highlighting the exhibit is the World Pork Expo Junior National, which has evolved into one of the United States’ premier educational programs and shows.
