World Pork Expo may be canceled, but the New Product Tour hosted by National Hog Farmer will go on, though in a slightly different format.
The National Pork Producers Council made the decision in early April that World Pork Expo should be canceled this year due to the risk potential of African swine fever reaching American soil and the U.S. pig herd. ASF is currently spreading across China and other Asian countries, as well as Eastern Europe.
Pork industry innovators have been busy this year coming up with a variety of new products to help producers save money and improve efficiency. National Hog Farmer is pleased to offer readers a chance to take a look at the new products, but you can do it from the comfort of your own home. The following gallery shows new products and services recently introduced to the pork industry.
A panel of judges will review the new product nominees, reach a consensus of the finalists, and then “meet” with company representatives through conference calls. This will allow judges to offer you a thorough overview of these products. This overview will appear in the July issue of National Hog Farmer, as well as at NationalHogFarmer.com.
As in the past, you will be able to vote for your favorite new product, one that will be named “Producer’s Choice.” Click here to vote online for your favorite new product offering.
