WPA To Host Producer Outreach Meetings

The Wisconsin Pork Association (WPA) is reaching out to all pork producers to get their feedback on industry issues and programs. Pork producers may select from four locations and may attend whatever meeting works best for their schedule.  Each event will include a meal followed by the meeting. Representatives from the National Pork Board and National Pork Producers Council are expected to attend.

Dates and locations are as follows:

  • April 1  Northeast:  Outagamie Co. Extension Office, 33 65 W. Brewster St., Appleton   6 p.m. – 9 p.m.
  • April 2  Southeast:  Sidelines Pub & Grill, 731 S Wuthering Hills, Janesville   6 p.m. – 9 p.m.
