The World Pork Expo is clearly in our sights as North American Pork Production converges on the Iowa State Fairgrounds in Des Moines June 6-8. As you mull over your visitation plans, don't forget to check out the business seminars series and the Pork Academy seminars. Of note will be the sessions Doing what’s right vs. looking for the camera and Feeding for 30.
