The Expo is organised by the National Pork Producers Council (NPPC) and includes the world’s largest pork-specific trade show, educational seminars, swine shows and sales.
Twenty-thousand members of the pork industry, from over 30 countries, are expected to attend the expo this year.
NPPC president Howard Hill said: "World Pork Expo is a showcase of pork production. You’ll find everything that a producer might use on the farm, from data processing and premier genetics, to new feeders and the latest animal health products. It’s a great opportunity to get a crash course in what’s new.
"World Pork Expo is the place where producers get together and share ideas, but it’s not just for primary owners. Producers should encourage staff members to attend, too. People come from countries throughout the world because there’s truly something for everyone at the Expo."
