Pork 101 - Iowa State University
The Pork 101 program will be held at Iowa State University on Oct. 13-15, 2014.
PORK 101 is a three-day, hands-on educational opportunity to update interested participants on quality and consistency issues in the pork industry. It includes insight on value differences in swine, pork carcasses, pork primals and processed pork products due to quality variation.
Through PORK 101, you will have the chance to evaluate eight live hogs. The animals will be processed during the class with participants learning about grading, food safety and product processing. Finally, the class will make and sample processed product from the hogs including pumped loins, bacon, hams and sausage.
Anyone involved in the production, processing and marketing of pork will benefit from attending this course.
