I am very much looking forward to seeing my friends in the Pork Industry next week at Pork Congress after it was canceled last year because of the pandemic. Since I have been at KDHL Pork Congress has always been at the Minneapolis Convention Center in downtown Minneapolis. This year it is in Mankato at the Mayo Clinic Health Systems Event Center. Plus, Pork Congress will be using the Civic Center Plasa as well.

Dave Preisler CEO of the Minnesota Pork Producers said if the Civic Center Plaza had not been added a few years ago there would not have been enough room for Pork Congress. Even with the Plaza the exhibitor space was sold out. Dave added they have just a one year contract to hold Pork Congress in Mankato and an option for the second year. After Pork Congress the Minnesota Pork Producers Association Board will decide if producers and exhibitors liked the Mankato location or if they should move back to the Convention Center.
