Check out and you can get all of the information on the Expo. The wife and I were involved with the pork producers back in the 70's and early 80's, we knew a lot of people on the top level but don't know many anymore. You need to know that Iowa produces more hogs than any other state in the United States. I have a neighbor gal that is 30 years old and owns four 2,000 head building for finish on contract and she does a fine job. A new project in northwest Iowa is taking off, it will be called Iowa Premium Pork and so far is composed of 104 pork prouducers that will lease a facility in Le Mars, Iowa to make package items. The hogs will be slaughtered in Sioux Center at SiouxPreme and then sent to Le Mars in three pieces for processing. It should be a great venture. We also have pork available in the area that is raised free of any antibiotics which there is a great demand for on the export level.
I hope your friend has a great trip to Des Moines. Tell her to make sure that she eats at "The Machine Shed" it is located by Living History Farm just north of the National and Iowa Pork Producers offices. She will be impressed and get a lot of good ideas for pork on the menu. The Machine Shed originated in eastern Iowa and now is a franchised operation. Looking on their menu you will find award winning selection that have been received either from the NPPC or the Iowa Pork Producers. We all hope you enjoy pork, the orther white meat! GWH
