National Pork Month
During the month of October, we celebrate National Pork Month. October became known as Pork Month because it was the time of year when hogs traditionally went to market. Today we use it to celebrate pork producers, share their stories and of course try delicious pork recipes!
According to the National Pork Producer Council, producers are responsible for:
- Marketing more that 115 million hogs annually.
- Supporting 550,000 jobs, which includes producers and main street businesses.
- Exporting over 2.2 million metric tons of pork-related products annually
- And providing an estimated $23.4 billion of gross output.
During the month of October, remember to thank your pork producers, as well as, businesses and educators for their hard work and dedication to the industry.
