The Missouri Pork Association is hosting Pork Profit Seminars across the state this December. Producers can attend one of four locations to hear the latest in industry topics. There is no charge to participate thanks to our generous sponsors.

 

This program has been developed thanks to input from Missouri’s pork producers. Owner/operators and barn workers alike will be given tips and tricks that can be taken back to the farm and implemented to help  with efficiency and cost reduction.
