For pork producers who want to make sure their news is up-to-date while they’re “on the go,” the National Pork Board introduces Pork Pod. Pork Pod is an audio file that is available online through a computer, iPod or MP3 player.

“Pork Pod is another tool that the Pork Board can utilize to communicate news to producers that they can use on their farms,” says Teresa Roof, manager of public relations for the Pork Board. “This will be an easy and convenient way for producers to hear from experts in the industry on current issues and hot topics in pork production.”

Producers can listen to Pork Pod while driving a tractor, a truck or doing the chores. Podcasts typically last about 7-10 minutes. More information about Pork Pod can be found at www.pork.org under the spotlight section.
