2023 Michigan Pork Symposium: Thursday, February 16, 2023

very year, Michigan Pork Producers Association works to bring pork producers together from across the state of Michigan for educational sessions, honoring award-winning producers, and to meet with industry representatives at the annual Michigan Pork Symposium. This year’s event will be held on Thursday, February 16, 2023 at the Lansing Center in Lansing, MI.

Grace Platte and Wayne Humphreys will open the 2023 Michigan Pork Symposium as keynote speakers.

Grace Platte with Animal Ag Alliance will present about bridging the communications gap in animal agriculture. The topic of responsible and sustainable animal agriculture has received a lot of attention in recent years, but these concepts are nothing new to the American farmers. For generations, farmers and ranchers across the country have raised animals not only in an ethical manner, but also in an environmentally sound and sustainable manner. Consumers are hungry to learn more about where their food comes from. Unfortunately, some of the loudest voices they are hearing from include activist organizations rather than farmers and industry experts. This session will empower attendees to be outspoken advocates for agriculture online and within their communities and make a difference in public perception by effectively communicating on relevant issues in animal agriculture.
