The 2012 World Pork Expo at the Iowa State Fairgrounds in Des Moines did a comprehensive job of highlighting all facets of the business of pork production. While companies were displaying new technology for owner/operators on the trade show floor, the next generation of young pork producers were showing a record number of entries in the World Pork Expo Junior National Show on the other side of the fairgrounds. The World Pork Expo Open Show also attracted some of the best purebred genetics suppliers in the country. National Hog Farmer's Jim Bauer roamed the show to capture images of the pigs and their people as the action unfolded.
