How the contest works

Following a spring nomination period, the Iowa Pork Producers Association (IPPA) judges the top 40 nominations. Those are compiled with the top five from each of our eight IPPA districts. The final top five are judged by a panel of judges in September, with winners announced during October Pork Month!
