Plugging Into Alternative Hog Markets March 5 in Redwood Falls

Growing consumer demand for niche pork products is outstripping hog production –
whether for  pork that is anti-biotic free, from heritage breeds or any of the
other criteria consumers are asking for.
If you're a family farm-sized hog producer and you want to learn how you can
profit from this growing demand without having to direct market to consumers,
you'll want to attend the Plugging into Alternative Hog Markets Meeting being held
in Redwood Falls, MN on March 5th at the Public Library (509 S. Lincoln St.) from
10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The cost is free and lunch is included.  
Strong alternative hog markets exist for family farm livestock producers right
here in Western Minnesota. And representatives from Pastures A Plenty, Niman Ranch,
and a local Berkshire Program will outline their marketing programs; how they work
with independent hog producers; their pricing structure and the production system
requirements for their particular markets. Multiple options for how to plug into
these existing markets will be discussed.
