Imagine having a chance to walk through the World Pork Expo trade show with some of the most qualified U.S. pork industry experts in their respective fields.

National Hog Farmer assembled just such a pork industry "dream team" at the recent 1998 World Pork Expo in Des Moines, IA.

The National Hog Farmer new product review panel included: Lee Johnston, extension swine specialist at the University of Minnesota's West Central Experiment Station, Morris, MN; Richard Collins, DVM, swine veterinarian at Dixon Veterinary Hospital, Dixon, IL; Craig Christensen, a pork producer from Ogden, IA; and Steve Hoff, agricultural engineer at Iowa State University.

The panelists evaluated a list of more than 70 new products nominated by manufacturers and trade show exhibitors.

What follows is a list of the eight products the panelists thought pork producers would find most interesting. The products are listed in no particular order.

If you would like more information about any of these products, circle the number on the reply card on page 43 and return it to National Hog Farmer.
