Make Plans For Porkapalooza & Corn-Soy Expo

The Wisconsin Pork Association invites pork producers and industry partners to the 2024 Corn-Soy Expo on Feb. 1-2 at the Kalahari Resort in Wisconsin Dells.

WPA’s annual meeting is Feb. 1 at 10:30 a.m. in the Africa 10 room at the Kalahari Convention Center. The annual meeting allows WPA members the opportunity to provide input on policies and the future direction of the organization. During the meeting are elections for the WPA board of directors and 2025 Pork Act delegates. In addition, WPA will recognize scholarship and distinguished service award recipients.

Following the annual meeting, WPA is excited to offer three valuable breakout sessions for producers and industry members to attend. Specifically, these sessions will focus on capitalizing on the pork-corn-soy relationship, foreign animal disease updates, and Prop 12 implications.

On Thursday evening, WPA will host their iconic “Porkapalooza” event starting at 5:30 p.m. in the Africa Foyer. This event features fun for all with unique pork hors d oeuvres, live music by Wisconsin’s very own Pat Watters Band, and live auctions that raise funds to support youth programs and industry issues. Special auction items include a Great River Ranch Weekend Getaway, Destination Kohler Weekend Package, authentic sports collectibles and memorabilia, a barn quilt, pies, and more.

Friday is another full day of presentations focusing on risk management, the Farm Bill, new swine industry research, and an exciting presentation from the Shark Farmer.

The early registration deadline is Dec. 31. To register for only the annual meeting and Porkapalooza, email or call 608-723-7551.
