Pig to Plate Adventure 

We are currently FULL for the March event.

Since 2018, the Iowa Pork Producers Association has been offering the ultimate pork industry experience for high school students! Activities include a commercial pig farm tour, a fabrication demonstration, a look into careers in the pork industry, a hands-on pork cookery class, and more! Read a recap of the 2022 event.

Next event is March 21!
