The U.S. Pork Center of Excellence has updated the Pork Information Gateway Web site. The updates feature a new site design and a home page featuring up-to-date pork headlines. Users must register to see much of the content but registration is free and your information is secure in this confidential database.

“The U.S. Pork Center of Excellence and all its partners are always looking for ways to improve collaboration and communication,” says David Meisinger, the center’s executive director. “The Pork Information Gateway has become a very popular Web site with over two million hits last year and over 10,000 pieces of information.

"We wanted to make it more modern, more user-friendly and more complete in its content. We are addressing all of these points to make this popular Web site even more useful.”

New features on the site include a home page featuring pork headlines and commentaries; links to news, markets and weather information; and drop-down menus to organize content. Other changes include the addition of a “Niche Production” domain and updates to PIG Opportunities.
