The 2010 World Pork Expo is fast approaching, but there’s still time to plan to attend. The events begin at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, June 9 and wrap up at 1 p.m. on Friday, June 11.

Of course leading the list of highlights is the world’s largest pork production-specific trade show, featuring 450 exhibitors.

On display pork producers, their staffs and consultants will find an array of products and services to assist in any sized pork production business. It’s a great time to shop for items needed now, or research for future purchases. Company representatives are there to answer questions and present ideas.

The exhibits are spread across the Iowa State Fairgrounds. You’ll find them in the Varied Industries Building, the Cattle Barn and outdoors. Plant to come early.
