The 2015 World Pork Expo is exactly one week away and we couldn’t be more excited.
In our younger years, we would love to tag along with Dad to sneak treats (everyone remembers the flavored slushies in the semen bags at the ZFI booth??) and eat as much barbecued pork as our stomachs would allow. Oh, and I suppose we would learn about all the new products and technologies while Dad stopped by his favorite booths to talk to old friends.
Since we morphed from attendee to exhibitor a few years ago, some of our focus has changed, but most stayed the same.
We look forward to catching up with old friends, but now it’s usually moved to our own booth (#729). And I still like to eat as much barbecued pork as humanly possible, but it’s now a quick stop before I get back in the Varied Industries Building to spread the word on PigEasy innovations. The one thing that will never change is the World Pork Expo is a family event.
And while I do miss being able to leisurely wander through the aisles on the day we’d attend, it is a captivating experience to meet so many people in a mere three days that are as enthusiastic about pork production as we are.
This year we are featuring the redesigned MealMeter. As Dad continues to observe and innovate, he also improves our current products. The updated MealMeter nose piece design funnels the feed flow and increases durability.
In addition to the MealMeter itself, we have a freshly designed farrowing crate that is made of stainless steel where you need it and mild steel in the areas where wear isn’t an issue in order to keep it reasonably priced.
The Chuck-It Bucket holding/disposal tank will be displayed at the QC Supply booth (#V489).
We have a lot to look forward to next week, barbecued pork included, and we can’t wait to visit with pork producers from around the world!
