The Pork Checkoff is presenting Producers Opportunity for Revenue and Knowledge (PORK) Academy on Wednesday, June 8, at the Downtown Marriott in Des Moines, Iowa.

"Pork producers who attend PORK Academy can learn about many different areas," said Leon Sheets, chairman of the Pork Checkoff's Education Committee and a pork producer from Ionia, Iowa. "As a pork producer, access to accurate and timely information is vital to my operation and the Pork Checkoff is helping provide that through educational events like PORK Academy."

PORK Academy is a series of in-depth seminars designed specifically to meet the need for pork producers to remain competitive in today's rapidly changing world. Sessions of PORK Academy will include presentations on biosecurity, reproduction, marketing, animal care and behavior, genetics, business and financial management, swine nutrition, environmental management, and alternative production and marketing.
