The U.S. Pork Center of Excellence has updated the Pork Information Gateway to create a more user-friendly Web site. Among the updates is a new site design and a home page that features up-to-date pork industry related headlines.

“The U.S. Pork Center of Excellence and all its partners are always looking for ways to improve collaboration and communication,” says David Meisinger, USPCE executive director. “PIG has become a popular Web site with more than 2 million hits last year and more than 10,000 pieces of information. We wanted to make it more modern in its appeal, more user-friendly in its application and more complete in its content.”

Among the other features are links to markets and weather information, drop-down menus to organize content, the addition of a “Niche Production” domain and updates to PIG Opportunities.

PIG was launched in 2006 as a free online resource to the U.S. pork industry.
