SPRINGFIELD, Ill. — The Illinois Pork Producers Association (IPPA) is once again hosting the Illinois Pork Expo at the Bank of Springfield Center in downtown Springfield this February.
On Tuesday, Feb. 4, Expo kicks off with the IPPA Annual Meeting at 9 a.m. At this meeting IPPA delegates will conduct business, present the Distinguished Service Award, and Pam Janssen of Minonk, current president, will also give her retiring address.
The trade show doors will open at noon and remain open through the Legislative Reception. Leading into dinner, at 5 p.m., will be the recognition of the 2020 IPPA Family of the Year. A delicious pork meal will be served as legislators visit with local pig farmers and allied industry folks that are exhibiting at the show.
On Wednesday, February 5, the trade show floor will be open from 8 a.m. to noon. University of Illinois Extension will be hosting a Certified Livestock Manager Training beginning at 12:15 p.m. for those who need to renew their certification.
We encourage you to attend the 2020 Illinois Pork Expo to show your support of the pork industry in our state. Whether an exhibitor, attendee or delegate, you are helping to ensure the legacy of pig farmers in Illinois.
